Chris Kidd talks about his very own Garden of Eden in this Island Life Magazine article.

Chris Kidd, Curator at Ventnor Botanic Garden, takes us through his own garden and his vision at Ventnor Botanic Garden in this fantastic article by Island Life Magazine here on the Isle of Wight.

“There was never any doubt that gardening was in Chris Kidd’s genes – it was right there staring at him from both sides of the family.

His mother Pam, who hails from East Wight, was descended from a market gardener in Lake, while his father Brian was not only an enthusiastic allotment holder and competitive grower – but carved a successful career in horticulture, eventually becoming the Director of Parks for Portsmouth City Council.

Chris clearly recalls spending hours on the allotment with his dad, from pretty much as soon as he could walk, so it was always an environment in which he felt at home.”
