This is my first blog so go easy on me please! As you can see, I do a lot of different things here, there and everywhere. On Saturday, I am off to Wisley to give a lecture to candidates on the RHS Master of Horticulture (MHort) programme. I tutor two modules for this prestigious qualification, one on operational business management the other on community food growing.

I am awaiting a list of landscapers to inspect for approval and ongoing membership of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL). I am currently working with Chris Snook (ex Hadlow) on a book about managing a landscape business. It has been eighteen months in the making but we are now making good progress (at last!)

I am just finishing off a report as an expert witness in a civil court case, this has been interesting to say the least!

I have recently signed a contract with the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) to provide training for garden retailers in a new training initiative.

I am hoping that this website and blog will enable me to renew contact with former colleagues and associates in this diverse and ever changing industry.
