About Rupert Bannister
I have had the pleasure and good fortune to train & work with some of the leading horticultural institutions in the UK and overseas. Having travelled and worked in inspirational locations from the wilderness of Scotland and New Zealand to the gardens of Cornwall and Japan I bring elements from each into my horticultural and education work.
