My name is Richard Timson and I took up the post of Horticultural Officer at Ashington Town Council in January 2020.
I was previously self-employed as a landscape gardener, working mainly in and around Ashington, planning and implementing bespoke garden designs.
I was born in Ashington and have lived in the town for the past 12 years. I have always had a passion for horticulture and a love for nature. I have rented an allotment for the past 6 years growing heritage fruit and vegetables for friends and family. I am currently studying my RHS level 2 certificate in horticulture and garden design and look forward to applying key principles to the Ashington’s floral presentations
In my spare time I enjoy reading, music, exercise and of course, gardening.
If you have any questions or query's regarding horticulture, or how Ashington’s floral presentations could be improved I would like to hear from you.
