About the presenter:
Adam Frost’s love of the great outdoors was nurtured from a young age by helping out on his grandparents’ allotment. His fascination with watching plants and vegetables grow and the wildlife it attracted has stayed with him and he remains passionate about passing this on to future generations of young people.
Adam hopes to inspire adults and children alike, to get outdoors and create their own garden and to discover the rewarding efforts of growing your own plants and vegetables, watching our hedgerows spring to life and simply being amongst nature to appreciate each one of our distinct seasons unfold.
Adam is trained in horticulture and landscape design and began his professional career in the mid-1980’s with an apprenticeship at the North Devon Parks Department. He later moved to Rutland and began working with gardening great, Geoff Hamilton at Barnsdale Gardens, where he helped design and create many of the 38 small gardens which were used as locations for the BBC’s Gardeners’ World weekly broadcast and are still on show to the public today.
In 1996 Adam established his own garden design and landscape business, working with some industry heavyweights, Sir Terence Conran, David Stevens and Dan Pearson. The last 20 years have seen Adam springboard into the public eye, due to his infectious enthusiasm, vast planting knowledge and creative flair, plus his unwavering passion for getting people from all walks of life, involved in gardening.
