I've worked within the garden industry for 15 years. At 21 I moved to London where I studied an RHS certificate in Horticulture at Capel Manor College and worked in several garden centres over 8 years. I then ran a small garden shop and gardening business.
Originally from Wolverhampton I then moved my business back home, and have now launched The Potting Shed!
Outside of work: I play the guitar, like going to gigs, cycling and having a few beers in the pub!
