Chris Gardner

Chris Gardner is a plant world all-rounder and top quality naturalist to boot. He runs his own garden design business though spends as much time as possible travelling all over the world. During the last few years he has also been busy re-tracing the journeys undertaken by the world's great plant hunters, so far matching the footsteps of Forrest, Wilson, Hooker and the Lobb brothers and produced an excellent book on the subject - 'The Plant Hunters' which he is hoping to update soon. Chris is also a keen birdwatcher and enjoys cooking, wine and various sports not necessarily in that order! Chris married Ba?ak last September and they now have a baby boy, Merlin, so he'll have to cross at least on thing off that list! A very able leader, Chris seamlessly manages to look after the day to day running of the tour while at the same time finding and showing fauna and flora to the group with an enthusiastic humour that we are sure you'll enjoy. Chris has supplied many of the images on the Greentours website. To see more of his pictures, take a look at his photography website "http://www.chrisgardnerphotography.com", where individual favourites or collections from Chris's tours will be available for sale as CDs or prints.
