Seed Pantry is delighted to welcome a new member to the team this month. Mike Thurlow (on the left in the pic!), renowned organic kitchen gardener and horticulturalist is joining our green-fingered team to help provide advice, tips and recommendations on growing your own flavoursome food.
He has over 30 years’ experience, early on as head gardener at Dyffryn Gardens (Vale of Glamorgan) and as horticultural director at Aberglasney Gardens in Carmarthenshire. From 1998 to 2012 he was Head Gardener of the Organic Walled Kitchen Garden at Audley End House, Saffron Walden where he oversaw the restoration of the Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden, combining Victorian and Soil Association standards to produce organic fruit and vegetables all year round.
His passion for growing organic heritage varieties of fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs has meant appearances in television programmes including Gardeners World, Great British Food Revival and British to the Core, along with writing of several books and columns in the gardening press.
Mike will be on hand to work with Seed Pantry’s founder, Neil Whitehead, on product development and will also be available to provide growing, sowing and planting tips to businesses and individuals interested in growing their own organic food.
Look out for new Seed Pantry products, advice and planting tips coming soon. Sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date.
Welcome on board Mike!
