Early in 2018 Sorrel Everton, Deputy Director of Gardens Illustrated, made contact with Grafton Nursery to ask if she could run a feature on our Eucalyptus.
On the approach to RHS Chelsea and BBC Gardeners World Live, timing proved to be complicated. We were already awash with film crew for our slot on the BBC2 Chelsea TV coverage.
Eventually, Grafton Nursery's CEO Hilary Collins was able to arrange a photo shoot with Jason Ingram, Director of Jason Ingram Photography, who was enlisted by Gardens Illustrated to photograph the feature trees. His photographs are stunning and really capture the qualities and characteristics of the trees.
Following Jason's visit, Garden Writer John Hoyland of Mad With Joy came to the Nursery to interview Hilary for the generous 6-page article. John was meticulous and enthusiastic throughout the several hours long interview. He concisely summed up Hilary's passion and expertise.
Hilary acted as proof-reader and also wrote sections of technical growing advice which have been printed as part of the article.
All of us at Grafton Nursery, Hardy Eucalyptus, would like to say a huge 'thank you' to Jason, John, Sorrel and her team at Gardens Illustrated, for the most fantastic article. We couldn't have asked for anything better. - Hilary
