Alan Down

Horticulture

Alan is a Master of Horticulture (RHS) and draws upon 50 years experience to bring his expertise to the team. He advises on the practicality of projects from a growing standpoint. Using his network and knowledge of who’s who in horticulture, Alan connects the team with growers, manufacturers and distributors. He and his company, have been involved in several high profile EBS schemes, including the Gold Medal winning ‘Modular’ garden.

Alan is excited by the prospect of engaging a new audience in gardening, and encouraging the breaking of down barriers to get more people to have a go at growing.

Fired by good strong coffee, Alan is the first to recognise that if it hasn’t got chlorophyll, then it’s probably Will’s department!
