Nick Dunn will be joining us for the Festival for the first time in September. Sharing with us his knowledge, insight and love for all things horticultural, Nick will also be spreading the word about Frank P Matthews for which he has been working and running for over 40 years. Nick has been awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour (VMH), the highest honour by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).  

The VMH is awarded to British horticulturists deserving of special honour by the RHS for horticultural excellence and personal endeavour and is regarded internationally as the highest distinction in horticulture. Only 63 medals are ever held at one time, Nick’s father Mr Andrew Dunn was also awarded the VMH in 2003.

We had 5 minutes with him to find out a little bit more....
