"I have been working with Martin for the last two years at RHS Garden Harlow Carr. Martin has played an integral and essential role in developing new events at the garden including our first flower show. On a personal level he has been a huge help to me and I know I will continue to lean on him in the future.... at least until my green fingers develop!!"
