Emily Hopton, one of Grayshaw & Yeo’s newest recruits, epitomises the typical G&Y gardener. With a creative arts and professional background as an administrator, Emily has also worked on a farm! She looks after her own 120ft garden as well as working part-time for G&Y.
Hook-based Emily grew up in a gardening family. Her mother remains an avid gardener and even moved to France to gain more land to work with, while her father and grandfather had vegetable gardens.
Emily loves the transformation in a garden that hard work rewards you with. She also enjoys the creative aspect of her work, being outside and the intrinsic value of gardening.
