Carole is a self confessed plant geek and looks after the Latin, propagating and all the planty bits. A qualified viticulturist she has been working with plants for over twenty years.
Nick designs and builds the website, gets up early to do the watering and does all the building, lifting and the 101 other jobs it takes to run a nursery. He's also in charge of the Dew Point propagator and takes some very fine cuttings.
Together, we nurtured a neglected vineyard back to life and for over ten years produced some rather good English wine. It got a favourable mention in The Good Wine Guide and was sold in a number of prestigious shops and restaurants. With a rise in the ever hungry deer population and the terminal age of the vines we turned our attention to plants and took the plunge into a new venture - Blackstem Plants.
