All About Me

Hi, my name’s George and I absolutely love gardening and wildlife. I mainly garden at home helping my Dad, but I also help out at local community gardens. In 2014, when I was 8 (I’m now 12) I won the RHS Young School Gardener of the Year. Here I am receiving my award from Frances Tophill at RHS Garden Wisley.

It was a fantastic year. I met The Queen, went on The One Show and gave out an award at RHS Chelsea Flower Show .

In October 2015 I was announced as the first ever RHS Young Ambassador; my job is to inspire other children to share my passion for gardening and the natural world. Since then I have spoken at the Houses of Parliament about young people in horticulture, made several appearances on CBBC’s Blue Peter and Newsround, been a junior journalist at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower for First News and more recently watched the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show build, which was filmed for Gardeners’ World.
