Hi, I just wanted to share this lovely card that came through yesterday… Dear Doug Thank you for coming to talk to us yesterday evening. Your talk was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, and I have received many complements on my choice of speaker! It is also ways a pleasure to learn when the information is…
A little bit about myself
I never really made a conscious decision to become a horticulturist. Plants have always been a huge part of my life. At 13 I started a gardening round, and rented an allotment, which soon led to supplying the local shop with veg & earning a little pocket money.
After training as a professional horticulturist I worked in roles as diverse as a lecturer in cucumber and tomato production, and a pumpkin grower, plant propagator, interior landscaper and garden designer.
For over 20 years Doug worked at a leading land-based college as Head of Horticulture, for the last 15 years he has been working as a horticultural business consultant, speaker and trainer.
Doug is the co presenter of The Great Outdoors, a two-hour gardening phone in on BBC Radio Humberside.
When not working Doug loves riding bikes, hiking trails, photographing nature and getting lost, A lot.
