New Horticulture Manager for HTA

HTA grower member support has been boosted by the appointment of botanist and broadcaster Pippa Greenwood as HTA Horticulture Manager.


With qualifications in Botany and Crop Protection, Pippa is a well-known figure in the garden industry as a horticultural and gardening writer, author, broadcaster and media commentator, advisor and speaker. She is best known for previously presenting BBC Gardeners’ World and is a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time. Her previous work experience includes running the Plant Pathology department at RHS Wisley.


Pippa will be a key part of the grower, nursery and plant production committees and groups within the HTA, as well as providing horticultural and technical input across the organisation. She will represent the organisation externally on horticultural matters and will work closely with Alistair Yeomans in driving forward the Plant Health and Biosecurity Alliance.


HTA President Boyd Douglas-Davies comments, “This is a significant appointment for the HTA and we are delighted to have Pippa on board to further our grower member liaison. This is a very different role for Pippa to the one that people will know her for but with her technical knowledge and strong media credentials she will be well placed to ensure our grower members’ needs are met.”


Pippa Greenwood said: "With such a vibrant UK horticulture industry and recognising the importance that plants and gardening play in our lives I am looking forward to bringing my skills and experience to the role of Horticulture Manager."
