Michael (Mick) Yates

Mick has lived in Oxfordshire since 1996 and following a career in logistics, he decided to follow his passion for gardening and worked as a horticultural technician at the Vale of White Horse District Council’s nursery. When the nursery closed in 2007, Mick took the position of Gardener at Worcester College in Oxford. During his time at Worcester College, Mick worked on over 26 acres of formal gardens and also outside of college grounds. He prides himself on maintaining gardens to a high standard and is highly knowledgeable of all things flora!
