Volunteer's Profile



About me

I have been a keen gardener since I was about 14 and studied Horticulture to A level.I've worked in the Gardening industry and lived in USA for 2.5 years. I am always in the garden and do volunteer gardening at Standen, which is a National Trust property in East Grinstead. My favourite jobs are propagation, pruning and training.
