“It’s a beautiful thing when a career & passion grow, in a Garden it is Paradise”  

“I have a desire to teach and a passion for learning, putting my passion, drive and enthusiasm for Horticulture to good use is paramount to me. If I can ignite the desire to learn in others then I feel my life challenges will be fulfilled.”

“The love of gardening is a seed sown that never dies.” 

Gardening has always been a way of life for me, raised on a smallholding in Mid Wales gave me plenty of opportunity to explore the great outdoors and cherish Mother Nature.

I knew at a very young age that life on a farm was not for me! I did, however, develop a keen interest in all plants and wildlife. An interest that has enabled me to work Internationally, on prestigious Estate’s, Villa’s and Gardens.

I began a blog to grow, educate and inform, I write articles and reviews for horticultural press. Click Here for professional garden advice.

Having the opportunity to share my experiences with others who have a keen interest, for Gardening reminds me how fortunate I have been to have such great mentors throughout my own horticultural career, spanning over 30 years.

I am passionate about gardening in all it’s forms. As Head Gardener with a team of ten staff, I currently manage a prestigious Cheshire country estate of 55 acres, inc wild flower meadows, woodland, organic kitchen and formal gardens.

My horticultural journey is far from over, my next adventure takes me Stateside in October to the City of Brotherly Love – Philadelphia –  I cannot wait to share the next stage of my career with you. Follow Stephen today  on Gardentags

    My husband would agree that you have the best job in the world! He’s a retired teacher, but the real love of his life has always been anything connected to horticulture. Lovely top photo, and all the best with your new position in October. I’ll look forward to reading your posts about it.
