Meet the Plant Experts
Saul Walker fell in love with horticulture through his Grandparents passion for visiting historic houses and gardens, and after a brief spell as an Archaeologist, he went to train and work as a Gardener for the National Trust at Antony House in Cornwall.
Lucy was raised at her parents’ market garden in Essex, before venturing to further her horticultural education at Writtle and Wye colleges. With an Honours Degree in plant sciences she then worked at the Royal Horticultural Society Garden (RHS) Wisley.
In 2022, Lucy and Saul met up with Head Gardener Louise Ellis at Audley End House to discuss the historic and modern-day management of the Kitchen Garden. Watch below to get a sneak preview of the garden!
