My name is Chris Downton as you can tell from the web address, I have been in full time gardening since 1993 and do not have any paper work to say that I know how to do what I am doing, but, what I do have if a life of being a country boy and growing up with a seed spud (Potatoes) in one hand and a dibber (implement for planting the spud) in the other. A father who used to let me take over the greenhouse as a child for all my pricking out projects that I used to do and brothers, yes I have 5 and all of them are older than me and taught me a trick or two about double digging, rotation of the vegetable beds and saving seeds for next years crop. I also consider myself as being very lucky because I have a father in law that could teach some of these so called TV gardeners how to do it properly and he is always there for me.

 

I do what I do because I want to, and not because I have to. How many people can say they love their job? I can!

 

I am registered with the Environment Agency. Registration number: SSU/879010 for the carrying and disposal of rubbish. I am also covered by a £10,000,000 public liability policy (although I never want to use it).

 

This site has a selection of jobs carried out by Myself, Matt and previous work partners that may give you some idea of what to do with your garden.
