Iain Davies spent much of his career in private gardens before taking up his position as Head of Gardens and Estate at Heligan, in November 2014. He has already made a monumental impact at Heligan, transforming and enhancing many key areas throughout the Estate. Iain believes that a public garden should be a showcase so he continues to demonstrate as many gardening techniques as possible, even within period-correct areas such as the Kitchen Garden.
“My ethos is to enhance the gardens and estate even further and to spread good horticultural practice throughout the site. There are so many historic and lost techniques that we can reinstate here at Heligan.”
