Nick read Business Studies at Cardiff University, before starting his working life as an accountant for Coopers and Lybrand. After two years, Nick realised he would rather pursue a career that reflected his real passion, gardening and design.
Over the years, Nick has lectured and taught both at the English Gardening School and at the beautiful West Green House, with Marylyn Abbot, teaching being another one of his passions.
Nick makes good use of his earlier accounting career in his role as Managing Director, but is still very much interested and involved in design projects and planting schemes.
Living in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, near the town of Stockbridge, Nick gains much influence from the timeless, romantic, English landscape that surrounds, together with the surprising abundance of beautiful wildflowers.
