Matthew Pottage is moving in May to be head of horticulture and landscape strategy at the Royal Parks, which include Bushy Park, Green Park, Richmond Park and Brompton Cemetery, after 20 years at RHS Wisley where he has been curator for nine years. Matthew was the youngest ever curator when appointed but had been at Wisley for 11 years before that. MPG benefitted from Matthew’s guidance at Wisley especially during our visit in September 2016 when he showed members round and gave a fascinating talk. Photo credit: RHS / Lee Charlton
