Adrian Webber joined the NHS as a graduate management trainee in 1980, after completing a politics degree at Warwick University. He was rapidly promoted and tipped right from the start as a high flyer destined for the top. Despite this, Adrian had developed from an early age a love of plants and an interest in how they could be framed within designs. He had no way of knowing, however, that his early love of plants would begin an adventure that would eventually lead him to China. Adrian, who is married with a twelve-year-old daughter, is now qualified and runs his own garden design and horticultural practice in southern England; his clients include large estates, hospitals and commercial clients. His designs are still heavily influenced by Chinese principles of garden design.
