Helen Round

Garden Manager - RHS Rosemoor

Not only do I work in a beautiful garden, but live in a wonderful location, perfect for walking my dog

I have worked for the Society for more than 20 years and have been lucky to work here during a period of rapid development – during which time I have become a Garden Manager. Not only do I work in a beautiful garden, but live in a wonderful location, perfect for walking my dog.

I enjoy walking and I am less than an hour's drive from two national parks; Dartmoor and Exmoor. I am also close to the South West coastal footpath with miles of stunning scenery, so I am spoilt for choice.
