Does anyone remember a film called ‘A Man for all Seasons’? If not, the title describes Adam Frost. It Is hard to believe that Adam is dyslexic, ran away from home at 16 and came second in an interview to work for Geoff Hamilton.
When Adams talk for Ticknall Garden Club began, I found I was utterly engrossed by his delivery. He started by telling us about gardeners chasing perfection and that our gardens should not be like Chelsea Flower Show or T.V. Gardens.
He suggested that we consider the upper canopy, mid layer, perennials and bulbs. Also to grow annuals for gap fillers, as they are more hardy and are good performers. (For example cosmos, Zinnias).
Adams talk ended with a slide of an example planting plan explaining the elements within the talk.
Finally, Adam has such an easy-going style. He came across as kind and considerate, and a true Gentleman.
