Paul is the eighth in a family of ten, the rest still lives in England. Paul moved to the U.S. when he met his wife Kristine, almost 30 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 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

Paul’s love of the art of gardening shines through, along with his British humor and energy. He adds a personable touch that makes gardening attractive to those who would never dream of watching such a program!

Paul enjoys all kinds of outdoor activities, including golf, tennis and soccer. He particularly loves to ride his snowboard and has been teaching at Elk Mountain for the past few seasons. Late winter is spent recuperating and reading history books!
