Tristan developed his passion for horticulture at an early age, thanks to his grandfather’s love of gardening.
After winning a BBM Youth Support Award, Tristan timed his trip to coincide with The Chelsea Flower Show, the world’s most prestigious flower show. Using his initiative and networking skills, Tristan volunteered on the team which created and built the 2013 Trailfinders Australian Garden.
This exhibit went on to win a Gold Medal and Best in Show, which was an historic first for an Australian team.
The experience of working for this team and the international contacts made during this single event were priceless and allowed Tristan to secure work experience at The Royal Botanic Gardens and the Royal Horticultural Society.
Since returning to Australia, Tristan has shared his experiences at nurseries and garden centres. As his love for gardening started at an early age, his ultimate goal is to promote horticulture through schools and highlight its importance in our daily lives.Update Your Details
