"Ian was a reliable asset to the team here at Godinton - hard working and meticulous in his maintenance work, knowledgeable and thoughtful when approaching new projects. Always well organised and with the benefit of the all important sense of humour."
Viv Hunt, Head Gardener, Godinton House and Gardens
"Ian proved to be an extremely reliable hardworking colleague and was a great support in the planting and maintenance of a complex design - the Colour Spectrum at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, produced by Landform Consultants. When the scheme was re-commissioned due to its popularity, he took over from me as the full-time gardener on site. I would not hesitate to recommend him."
Sarah Allan, Gardener, Landform Consultants (2002 - 2006)
"I have always been impressed with his detailed plant knowledge and enthusiasm for horticulture. He is experienced, hardworking and trustworthy and can be relied upon to do a thorough job."
Neil Barry, Neil Barry Horticulture
"Ian transformed our dull, dated garden into a place of soft shaping and colour, with plantings from grand to delicate. It has been an oasis in which we can truly relax, enjoying our calming surroundings, with sun, shade and birdsong."
