About Tyler

Tyler was introduced to gardening from a young age by his grandmother and his passion for growing has never stopped. He spends a lot of time researching gardening techniques online and putting them into practice, experimenting with anything from different weed controls to taking cuttings from different plants. Tyler is a true plantsman and loves to pass on his knowledge to other children at school.

Judges' comments
