Pete Earl

Team Leader

I was put in charge of the development of the Fruit and Vegetable Garden and have been there ever since

I have worked at Rosemoor since the very early days when it was gifted to the RHS by Lady Anne Palmer in 1988. In those days the Formal Gardens were just pastureland. Since my main interest is in growing fruit and veg, I was put in charge of the development of the Fruit and Vegetable garden and have been there ever since!
 
As well as horticulture, I have done a lot of hard landscaping around Rosemoor including walling and paving.
 
In my leisure time, I enjoy cycling, walking and spend many holidays camping.
