Chris is more than a TV gardener a highly qualified horticulturalist he brings deep and special knowledge to all his work and began in 1999 as the expert on Surprise Gardeners Carlton TV whence he was potted-on to BBC TV with Real Rakeovers again as the expert contributor.

His first show as sole presenter was Weekend Gardener for UK Style in 2000 the same year he co-presented Gardening Neighbours for BBC 2.

He reached a new audience by digging over the plot for Housecall (series 1,2 3) for BBC 1 Daytime in 20001.

In 2000 Chris joined Gardeners World Live as a specialist presenter thence it was a short jump to Gardeners World itself as an integral team member - now with Monty Don.

His solo career took off with Flying Gardener and Winter Flying Gardener and for Hidden Gardens he has unlocked horticultural treasure troves (2002 2003)

Chris studied horticulture at Pershore where he also lectured for four and a half years - before managing the plant research and development division of one of the largest wholesale nurseries in the country and gaining an MA in Landscape Architecture from Cheltenham.
