Guest Associates

 

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been joined, from Day One, by a number of Guest Associates. These people and companies will join the Allandscapers Team and be on hand to answer those queries that either the team cannot handle, or are not legally able to offer advice.

BRADSTONE Ltd – I have had the honour and pleasure or working with Bradstone for over twenty years, designing and building the many gardens and sets for all their catalogues and brochures (between 1986 and 2005), plus various Hints & Tips videos, all of their Bradstone Design Award Gardens plus many others at The Chelsea Flower Show.
We will working with Bradstone to build on the success of their Bradstone Assured Contractors, and they will help with all matters ‘stone’.

PALMSTEAD NURSERIES – in the shape of Nick Coslett, Sales Manager, who I have known for at least twenty years, both on BALI and APL events and Committees, but also as a great ambassador for the Landscape plant growers. Nick is well known in the industry and is a very approachable individual.

SIMMONS SAWS Ltd – Peter Simmons is a main stockist for Stihl and other makes of garden equipment, and is very much a practical, ‘hands on’ type of professional. Peter will deal with machinery enquiries – best machine for the job at the best price – and anything else vaguely technical. I have dealt with Simmons since the early 70s, when Peters late father was running the business.

BHGS Ltd – Paul Roman, who is one the most respected professionals involved in the garden chemicals business (plus composts and specialist equipment), who is fully qualified to advise on such matters. He is quite simply a brilliant chap, whom I have worked with since around 2000. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic!

Contact details of all these people will be given out as required. Please note that nobody will make any charge or obligation for their advice. They are all keen to work with Allandscapers.org to promote the industry.
