Spear and Jackson has teamed up with the award-winning garden landscape designer, Lee Bestall, of Bestall & Co. Both based in Sheffield, the two have a long-standing relationship and Spear and Jackson are pleased to announce that Lee will officially be acting as their Brand Ambassador with effect from 1st January 2018.

In Lee, Spear and Jackson have found a partner who shares their passion for gardening and outdoor living. A regular contributor to industry titles and a stand-in presenter on BBC Radio Sheffield?s Gardeners Question Hour, Lee has an increasingly popular public profile and is enjoying great success as a garden designer at high profile events such as RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Spear and Jackson have worked with Lee on a series of short videos aimed at amateur gardeners. The videos are presented by Lee and provide regular hints and tips on seasonal gardening jobs, coupled with advice on the best tools and how to use them. Most recently Spear and Jackson developed a series of project videos in which Lee provides practical advice on tackling those bigger garden jobs like installing a fence, creating a raised bed and building a deck.

Spear and Jackson Managing Director, Ian Archer, says ?We?re delighted to be working with Lee Bestall as our Brand Ambassador, his gardening expertise, enthusiasm and professional reputation are a perfect fit with our heritage brand and we are very excited to working with him once again in 2018?.

Lee will be taking on an increasing public-facing role for Spear and Jackson within the garden centre environment and will be on hand at the forthcoming Garden Press Event in London on 28th February.

Lee will continue to present the next series of garden project videos as well as appearing as a monthly guest blogger on the Spear and Jackson website. Lee will also be making a series of public appearances with Spear and Jackson at key shows and Summer events at selected garden centres.

Lee said ?It?s going to be a busy year, but I am very excited to be part of Spear and Jackson?s plans. I can?t wait to get out on the road to share my love of garden design and I hope to inspire as many like-minded gardening enthusiasts as possible at the Summer events.?
