On Friday 26th October Tim Crowther retired from his post as General Manager at Walberton Nursery after 38 years of loyal service. After arriving in 1974 with a plan to stay only 5 years, Tim has helped David Tristram turn a 6 acre plot of largely open ground into the 32 acre Walberton Nursery we know today.
In his farewell speech to staff Tim said of his time at Walberton, “I have enjoyed my 38 years as Manager of Walberton largely because of the unique quality of the people I worked with. Thank you. Without you, Walberton would have been just another Nursery.”
Tim will return in January as a Plant Breeder to assist David Tristram in developing Walberton’s next generation of exciting new plants.
We wish Tim all the very best!
