Paul's Bio

Paul is passionate about creating gardens that his clients will enjoy and enhance the natural environment.

Having completed an apprenticeship and further training at Capel Manor College, where he passed the RHS general certificate, Paul started up his own gardening company in West Essex which has successfully run for over thirty years. As the business developed so did Paul’s thirst for learning and he transitioned from garden maintenance into garden design. Most recently, Paul has gained a distinction in the Essential garden design diploma at the prestigious English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden. Paul learnt from the incredibly talented, Rosemary Alexander, who has been a great mentor. Paul has also learnt from BBC’s designer, Nick Bailey, and completed an Advanced Planting Design Course.

Paul works with his clients to understand what they want from their gardens and designs spaces that are both practical and beautiful. At Allium Gardeners we believe that all four seasons can be experienced in one garden, and Paul works with his clients to create a space which is beautiful and welcoming all the year round.

Whilst design is where his passion lies, Paul can’t resist getting his hands dirty and often takes full control of the planting.
