Speaking at a Professional Gardeners' Guild seminar held in conjunction with a Historic Houses Association event, Ashbrook said many of his fellow historic house owners employed gardeners who would make ideal members for the PGG.
He said: "I know and we know the PGG does a lot of very good work in promoting gardening and I want it to be better known among the HHA. Many members of the HHA have head gardeners who are PGG members. I will be promoting the PGG with the HHA members today and they have very kindly agreed to let me make a brief announcement at their meeting."
