Meet the Gardeners
…has been in horticulture since he first left school at 16, when he worked and trained at Hadlow college in Canterbury in Amenity horticulture. Moving onto Merrist wood college to train in Arboriculture, he continued to work in tree surgery for a further 2 years before returning to his first love ‘flowering plants’. Here he worked in designing and maintaining private gardens, winning a number of awards for gardening in the process. Steve is the first employee at The Salutation to hold the Head gardener position, and he has been at the forefront of the restoration, with the family, for five years.
…Josh is the youngster of the team but has already spent a year at Hadlow doing a first diploma and is now in his first year of training at The Salutation.
