Talking Heads - a Gardening Podcast

Nov 21 2021 • 43 mins

From time to time Lucy and Saul decided they wanted to record conversations with other Head Gardeners, Curators, Garden Owners and fellow horticulturists across the UK, these will be published as Bonus Episodes alongside their usual format of chatting about their gardening lives. We hope you enjoy.

For the Bonus Episode #14 we are joined by the brand new Head Gardener at Helmingham Hall, Brendan Arundel. Having made the jump from Cambridge Botanic Garden and Wisley Apprentice, via RHS Hyde Hall to Helmingham in no short time, Brendan gives us his thoughts on becoming a first time Head Gardener, the confidence it takes to make that step up into managing an historic space and his advice to those who have started in our industry about how to reach this worthwhile career milestone.

Apologies for some of the audio quality on this interview.
