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 Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, called Greystone Gardens. It features a unique collection of plants and gardening accessories. Greystone Gardens can be visited on the web at
