Hi I am James and I am a gardener. I work in a large private family garden in Hertfordshire called Dew Pond House.
As a teenager, I took a degree in Landscape Management at The University of Reading, and I have worked as a gardener ever since. I have had a wide range of jobs, varying from landscaping new-build properties, taking care of stately home estates, running my own garden maintenance business and working for a gardening magazine.
In Winter 2015 I started as the sole gardener at Dew Pond House and as I now have plenty of time ruminating with my thoughts while I work in the garden, I felt this was the ideal time to start this blog.
