Meet our gardening team

2nd July 2017

Behind any great garden has to be a great team and at Floors Castle, this is no exception.

Working with The Duchess of Roxburghe and her garden design team on the exciting redevelopment project, is the team of three full time gardeners.

The Head Gardener at Floors Castle is Andrew Simmons and he has 42 years’ experience, including several years on the royal estate of Balmoral Castle working for the Queen. Andrew brings a wealth of knowledge, a keen eye for detail and an unrivalled passion for gardening.
Len Freshwater has been with the Floors Gardening team for 23 years and his pride and joy are the grapes and peaches he cares for.
Simon McManus has been with the team for 11 years and has a varied horticultural background. Simon oversees the growing of all the pot plants and what a wizard he is in growing these.
