December 10th 2017

Nell Jones has replaced Nick Bailey as Head Gardener at Chelsea Physic Garden.

A former volunteer at the garden, she became a full-time trainee. After leaving to work in a private garden she returned to take up a staff post in 2011.

She said: "The position of Head Gardener at the extraordinary Chelsea Physic Garden really is walking in the footsteps of some of the most well-known horticulturalists. So many important developments in the history of horticulture medicine and agriculture have been made at Chelsea Physic Garden."

Nell has also launched a media career and can be seen on Gardeners' World as a TV presenter.
