From Staybridge, Greater Manchester, George won the Young School Gardener of the Year in 2014. In his speech at the RHS London Shades of Autumn Show, he said:
“Gardening and being outdoors is all I’ve ever known, really. It started when my family and I got involved in a community gardening project, with an allotment, orchard and beehives, and I’m always doing things like digging on the allotment, apple pressing and harvest festivals… I’m due to leave primary school soon and have recently been looking at high schools; the first thing I asked was, ‘where’s the garden?”
“It is an honour to be asked to be an RHS Young Ambassador. It’s a very big thing for me, and my family are really proud. I look forward to inspiring other children to get involved in gardening and have fun.”
George joins Alan Titchmarsh, Mary Berry, Adam Frost, James Wong and Nick Knowles as an RHS Ambassador.
