Graham spent fifteen years working in specialist horticulture at one of the oldest nursery sites in the UK. This gave him an exciting and interesting insight into how a small nursery firm functions on a day-to-day basis, as well as unique opportunities including staging exhibits at the Chelsea Flower Show and elsewhere.

This talk is partly illustrated with colourful and informative photos. It is fun and full of amusing and enlightening anecdotes about the experiences and people encountered during a career in horticulture, as well as an overview of nearly 90 years of growing at Croftway Nursery.
