He and his wife moved to Gloucestershire some 17 years ago and since retirement have created a new garden at their home in Longhope. They are both keen gardeners and plantsmen and have been members of the HPS for 40 years. Widely travelled, especially in the USA, Keith has written regularly for The Hardy Plant over recent years. He is hoping to bring some specialist plants to sell.
