Background Information

Ashley Ramsbottom, the proprietor, has had a long association with Delphiniums during the 20 years he spent growing them at the RHS Garden in Wisley. Despite growing many other plants Delphiniums remained a firm favourite so when the opportunity to run his own nursery came about the choice of plant was simple.

Ashley, left school at 15 to work as an apprentice at Wisley moving to the Propagation Department after a few years. Whilst at Wisley he progressed to Supervisor in the Propagation Department and was responsible for training: staff, visitors and students in propagation techniques and producing many different plants for the RHS Garden and Trials field. Some of our customers have attended these workshops and still seek his advice with propagation.
