Currently I manage a kitchen garden which is part of a large botanic garden. All the produce is organically grown using a no-dig system on the beds. The harvests are used within the onsite kitchens and sold to the public.
I am a kitchen gardener working in London, and focus on experimenting with new crops and techniques, especially in the area of climate change. Trained in a historic setting, I have a strong passion for heritage vegetables and also specialise in trained fruit and orchard management.
I have previously managed an Edwardian kitchen garden, which consisted of an orchard, a peach house and a cut flower garden.
Along side my practical horticutural work, I write books on the subject, as well as giving lectures and training sessions. I am passionate about sharing experiences and knowledge.
