It’s not everyday you meet somebody with the same name as yourself, let alone having some of the same interests.
I was contacted by the other Neil Lucas from the ‘Knoll Gardens’ who is a Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medallist for 10 consecutive years. Neil asked me if I could help support his charity ‘The Knoll Gardens Foundation’ by donating a print for a fund raising event. After spending an enjoyable morning with Neil in his very photogenic gardens, we discovered a joint interest in trees of all shapes and sizes, making the choice for a print an awful lot easier.
The foundation promotes the research and development of sustainable wildlife gardens, and Neil’s website www.knollgardens.co.uk is a great place for information and inspiration and really worth a visit.
