About us: Bruce

Bruce owned a well known garden center for many years in Bethel, Vermont. He moved to Umbria, the green heart of Italy, in 2004, to     a converted haybarn.

Griffs.For the last 12 years he has been designing and installing beautiful landscaped gardens like the ones shown here.

 

This has been a grand adventure involving much education in Mediterranean plant culture, irrigation systems and the Italian style of getting things done. The gardens are located in some beautiful locations.

But finally the pull of Vermont, family and growing plants has reasserted itself.

About us: Jan

My background is in education, I owned two education centres in the North of England for many years helping children to improve their grades in core subjects such as Math and English.  In 2004 I moved to Spain where I lived in a 300 year old farmhouse surrounded by olive, fig and almond trees in the mountains of Catalunya.

I have always been a keen gardener and I get great pleasure from growing unusual varieties of plants, flowers and vegetables.

This stunning fuchsia is named ‘Twist and Shout’,  which is quite pertinent  as I was born just a few miles ‘cross the Mersey’ from Liverpool, hometown of The Beatles.
