Nick studied Landscape Architecture after leaving school and his plant flame was lit while at Pershore. After graduating from Pershore Nick then migrated into Parks Departments working in Liverpool, and Stevenage, gaining the ILAM Diploma and a DMS, before managing Canterbury.
20 years ago he moved into nursery sales, combining his love of people and plants and has been with Palmstead for over 10 years. Nick was honoured by his industry peers with the Grower of the Year ‘Sales Professional of the Year 2012' for the UK nursery industry. He enjoys every day at Palmstead, "its always so varied and we have a great team here. I get a buzz in helping customers get the right plants." Nick's own garden is a test bed of favourites and no design set piece; his favourite garden is Great Dixter.
