Hi, I’m Alan Down

title-seperator-1-new

Welcome to my site! I’m passionate about plants, gardening, gardens, travel, wildlife and the natural world!

After over 50 years working in many sectors of horticulture I’ve finally found more time so I’d love to share this passion with you!

You’ll find my garden column in 5 West Country newspapers. I share my day to day thoughts and experiences on Twitter and Instagram. You may even hear me from time to time giving topical gardening tips on BBC Radio Bristol. I’m currently helping the gardening Candide App with expert content, images and consultancy and I’m happy to consider other similar projects.

If you belong to a large gardening group then I’d love to talk to you!
