After graduating in Agricultural Botany at Reading University in 1976 and working for a short time in research in plant pathology, I went to the Pacific region working on rubber, cocoa and oil palm estates. I started working with roses in 1984 on my return to the UK, joining David Austin Roses in 1985 firstly as nursery manager and then as technical director and rosarian giving advice on all matters relating to roses, designing rose gardens, writing, lecturing and generally promoting the nursery and David Austin’s English Roses around the world. I have been a passionate gardener and plants person from an early age and have a half acre garden with many roses that is treated organically. www.DavidAustinRoses.com
