How long have you been a gardener?

My family has links to Great Dixter, a Tudor house in Kent with a famous 20th-century Arts and Crafts garden, where my grandfather was one of the gardeners and my grandmother was the housekeeper. I would like to think that some of that horticultural knowledge distilled down into me. My parents were also famers, and even after they sold the farm, I still had a real passion for plants, particularly orchids, that grow in our woodlands. I went to college in Lewes to study general horticulture and that was, gosh, nearly half my life ago. Since then I have trained with the Royal Horticultural Society and done conservation work in Ecuador. I have honed that experience and now run my own consultancy business. I do everything from complete garden makeovers to acting as head gardener for an existing garden. I also lecture and do horticultural tours.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
