Bruce Bullock, our Site Gardener
I have been working as the caretaker/gardener at Drews Park since 2003. I work part-time and my responsibilities include tending the flower beds and shrubs, weeding, watering in summer, cutting the hedges and larger shrub beds, collecting litter, spraying for weeds along the pathways, blowing leaves and twigs off the parking areas, paths and roadsides, small tree pruning, raking up
leaves in autumn and winter and keeping the bin stores tidy. I also perform weekly health and safety checks on the children’s play area and take cardboard and other items to the recycling depot at Hopton.
I was born and grew up in Zimbabwe, Africa, and have been involved in horticulture for much of my life. I have been a horticultural manager for retail outlets and have also run my own vegetable seed business and small tree nursery.
Prior to becoming a self-employed gardener I worked as the horticultural supervisor for Care Rowde. I enjoy working outdoors in most weather (except heavy rain) and have a particular interest in trees, bonsai and seeds. I have RHS and RFS qualifications in horticulture and arboriculture and live with my wife and 12 year old son in All Cannings just near Devizes.
