Ultimately though it was his passion for plants and gardening which brought him to Bestall & Co as a member of the planting team. He was brought up around gardening from an early age, and both sets of grandparents had been self-sufficient in fruit and veg. Kevin used this background and experience in his own gardens, one of which was featured in a bestselling garden magazine. Continuing to develop his horticultural knowledge through our training programme, he now uses his skills to publish articles for our website as well as ensure our projects are planted up to the high standards for which we aim.
