Professional Gardeners' Guild president Lord Ashbrook pledges support to support Historic Houses Association members

The new president of the Professional Gardeners' Guild (PGG), Lord Ashbrook, has pledged to promote the organisation to members of the Historic Houses Association (HHA).

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."
