Award-winning garden designer Adam Woolcott becomes Handy’s gardening expert

by | Aug 30, 2022 | News | 0 comments

British garden equipment manufacturer Handy is delighted to announce the appointment of multi-award-winning garden designer Adam Woolcott as its new gardening expert. Adam will be producing regular blogs and videos for Handy offering practical advice to retailers and gardeners around the nation, starting in September with the subject of how to revive lawns following the exceptionally hot, dry summer.

Adam has 30 years of experience as a professional gardener and has many accolades, but is probably best known for his four Gold Medals at The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show and his three BBC/RHS People’s Choice Awards at the show (of which he is particularly proud) which he won as one half of Woolcott & Smith.

Adam is a seasoned veteran when it comes to the gardening media, making regular appearances on the ever-popular BBC Gardeners’ World and across BBC Radio, as well as a designer on Channel 5’s Great Garden Challenge. His gardens have also been featured in leading national media, including the Saturday Times magazine and Daily Telegraph publications.

Adam will be providing gardening advice in the form of blogs and videos across all of Handy’s brands – Webb, Handy, Q Garden and Greenworks – which is a first for the company. “With the expansion of product lines across our brands, and increased investment in marketing and sales support, the introduction of a recognised gardening expert to expand our customer reach and add further weight to our credentials as the UK’s leading garden machinery supplier, was a natural next move” states Mark Moseley, Handy’s Sales & Marketing Director. “Adam has a real connection with the gardening public; they love his garden designs as can be seen from his incredible three BBC/RHS Chelsea Flower Show People’s Choice Awards.  For us, he was a natural choice to be our new gardening expert and we couldn’t be more delighted.”

Adam Woolcott said “It’s a joy and privilege to be associated with such an established, trustworthy, and professional company like Handy. Having used gardening equipment domestically and professionally for over three decades, I can’t wait to share my expertise and passion with you all”.

Adam Woolcott’s new gardening blog/video feature will be live in September via Handy’s website for the trade
