“Confessions of a Council Gardener” – Andrew Hogarth, Acting Principal Amenity Officer for East Lothian
Andrew has spent 35 years gardening in East Lothian. He was formerly Area Amenity Officer for the east half of the county. He has always been the liaison person between the council and local groups taking part in Beautiful Scotland. He designs horticultural features throughout East Lothian and has been particularly successful with perennial plantings. He is now responsible for the west half of the county and plans to improve its public horticulture. He received an Employee of the Year award from the council. Andrew is a judge for Beautiful Scotland where categories involving East Lothian are not included.
The Caley is looking forward to hearing some of Andrew’s Confessions!
