Paul is the eighth in a family of ten, the rest still thriving in England. Paul moved to the U.S. when he met his wife Kristine, almost 20 year's ago. Paul's gardening career goes back to his childhood. His mother, Barbara, was a keen gardener, an active member of the RHS, and from her, Paul learned all the basics as a child in large Edwardian Homes. He has been gardening ever since, both professionally and for pleasure.

Presently, Paul runs a garden center in Pennsylvania, Greystone Gardens. It features a unique collection of plants and gardening accessories. The garden center includes a seasonal Cafe. Greystone Gardens can be visited on the web at www.GreystoneG.com.
