I have been gardening since as long as I can remember. As a child I grew vegetables at home, and dug a hole to Australia in the back garden! I graduated from Bath with a BA Hons in 3D design, and after a few years paying my student debts of as a postman I found my path in professional horticulture. After training with London Gardens and Clifton Nurseries in London for 5 years I started my own business in 2004, and relocated to the Island in 2006.
My favourite plants right now are: Helebores
Warren was my first member of staff since being on Island. He completed his horticultural training at the Island college in 2006 with a double distinction! He has been working along side me for over a year now. Warren is always looking for inspiration, and loves to relax at home after a successful days work. He is also a successful sailor.
His favourite plant right now is Daphne.
Sam has just started working with us and has quickly proved himself as a great asset to the team. He has recently left sixth form with 6 A levels under his hat! Sam is now embarking on an evening wood working course at the Island college. He is bright and practical, and is enjoying the outdoor work. He has an interest in the sustainable building industry.
Sam enjoys sports, going to the gym and learning new things.
Sam’s favourite plant right now is Berberis.
