I like to think of myself as the traditional English eccentric gardener. Pottering around the borders with a Panama hat and trowel but always with some huge mandrake plant in the greenhouse to keep me interested.
I personally work with educational bodies; private plant collections, universities, museums and supply information and material to those institutions.
I am a published author and get a great deal of satisfaction from writing.
I think it is worth mentioning that I am a man in my fifties. My wife and I work; she loves her work I love plants and seeds.
To me the customer is king .I like to get orders correct and give more than the customer buys either in information or service
I am continually at afternoon tea discussing any thing that takes my fancy .
I like to stay in touch with customers. I have many friends from all over the world that have purchased items from me, occasionally they practice their English but mostly we swap ideas and talk gardening.
When I originally started selling plants a few years ago it was at church fetes and fun days .Because of the English weather the venues were mostly rained off .Then finally one sunny Sunday morning the sky’s turned black, the gentle wind turned into a shrieking gale and it destroyed my stall. Since then I have been dealing in plants and seeds on the internet and I don’t even have to get wet.
