David Howard – A life in perennials

David Howard (1938 – 2019) was one of British Isles’s great nurserymen. Here, in a moving reminiscence film he recalls his life as a grower firmly rooted in his community in Norfolk in eastern England. His wife Sheila and daughter Christine (who now runs the business) join in. With thanks to Ellen Mary for the interview and to Richard Bloom for the iris pictures.
