What’s your history in horticulture?
I’m a horticulturist by training and have been a consultant, technical and production director in horticulture for 25 years. I started my career at ADAS, the UK’s largest independent provider of agricultural and environmental consultancy. During the organisation’s transition from the government department to an agency to the commercial firm, I developed a nationwide customer base in the bedding plant industry. I then got the opportunity to put my technical knowledge into practice in a rapidly expanding business undertaking technical, operations and production director roles at Roundstone Nurseries. I now work as an independent consultant, weaving together my passion for technology and plant science.
