“David has the knack of passing on his wide knowledge with an infectious enthusiasm that is never overbearing.”

Alan Titchmarsh, Gardener and presenter

“David is amazingly knowledgeable about all aspects of gardening and horticulture, borne of his wide experience. I’ve been lucky enough to know and work with him for many years.”

Carol Klein, Plantswoman, author and TV presenter

“It’s always a pleasure working with David on our practical videos – he’s a great presenter and knows his subject inside out.”

Daniel Hayes, Editor, gardeners world.com

“We first lectured at Sparsholt College in the late 1980’s – even then David showed a natural ability to communicate, had an infectious enthusiasm and cared greatly about teaching his subject to the next generation of horticulturists and gardeners.”

Rosie Yeomans, Horticultural consultant, broadcaster and lecturer

“David has years of practical experience over a vast range of gardening subjects, an irrepressible passion for plants and a desire to share that knowledge with everyone.”

Matt Biggs, Horticulturist, author and broadcaster

“Getting gardening advice from David is like getting advice from your best friend who knows a lot more about gardening than you but who never makes you feel inferior. He delivers guidance with oodles of expertise and a dash of good humour.”

Rebecca Parker, Presenter/producer, The Kitchen Garden, BBC Radio Solent

New on-line Garden Shop is now open

There are some things that a gardener just can’t do without, so I’ve put together essential gardening kit in my garden shop for you to buy online. They’re all products that I enjoy using and I hope you do too. And one of my garden essentials while I’m doing my spring pruning and training is garden twine – particularly in these great colours of liquorice and cinnamon!

There are other products too, and more will be added over the coming weeks so keep a look out for what’s new.

All the items would make great gifts – but don’t forget to treat yourself, too. And remember you only pay a flat-rate on postage, however many items you buy!
