Richard Jackson

Richard has enjoyed a very varied career in gardening from working for world renowned Hillier Nurseries to being Gordon the Gopher’s personal gardener on BBC One’s ‘Going Live’. After setting up and running garden centres in London, he was invited to do a spot of gardening on TV and, to his surprise, enjoyed it. Twenty years on, he’s still doing it, and can be seen most weeks on QVC.
