The first years in television for Chris began in the fertile beds of TV Gardening, blooming in 2003 with no fewer than three prestigious BBC 2 series: -
Gardener's World, Hidden Gardens, Flying Gardener - progressing to Channel 4's live Great Garden Challenge for 2005:- For 62 days through the summer teams from all over Britain designed small gardens in a vast plot at Blenheim Palace with the public voting winners and losers as the series proceeded.
Chris is more than a TV gardener: a highly qualified horticulturalist and keen environmentalist he brings deep and special knowledge to all his work and began in 1999 as the expert on Surprise Gardeners Carlton TV whence he was potted-on to BBC TV with Real Rakeovers again as the expert contributor.
His first show as sole presenter was Weekend Gardener for UK Style in 2000 the same year he co-presented Gardening Neighbours for BBC 2.
He reached a new audience with Housecall (series 1,2 + 3) for BBC 1 Daytime in 2000/1
In 2000 Chris joined Gardener's World Live as a specialist presenter thence it was a short jump to Gardeners World itself as an integral team member.
His solo career took off with Flying Gardener and Winter Flying Gardener and for Hidden Gardens he has unlocked horticultural treasure troves (2002 + 2003)
Chris studied horticulture at Pershore where he also lectured for four and a half years - before managing the plant research and development division of one of the largest wholesale nurseries in the country and gaining an MA in Landscape Architecture from Cheltenham.
He lectures, writes (The Natural Gardener pub. winter 2002) and has a thriving garden-design business (GOLD Medalist + Peoples Choice Award - CHELSEA 2006) while still finding time for his other passion diving!
