WILL GILES - BOTANIST

I was extremely fortunate to know Will. He was a kind, generous, humorous and potty mouthed chap, passionate about growing all kinds of weird and wonderful plants from his personal centre of the universe in the heart of Norwich.

Will never claimed to be good at anything (other than knowing every single episode of Star Trek) and the extent of his horticultural knowledge and his real personality was often hidden behind a myriad of floral shirts and an effervescent persona. His extravagant gardening style was (and still will be) an inspiration to many thousands of people around the globe.

Over our 15 years of friendship I fortunately collected a series of formal and informal portraits, which have become incredibly important to me. I hope you get a glimpse of his eccentric life from this series.
