Head Gardener by Jake and Warren Oldershaw

This delightful show digs deep into the reasons we could all do with a bit more horticulture in our lives.


Brothers Jake and Warren Oldershaw are born and bred West Wighters, but don’t hold that against them! While Jake made a career out of ’showing off’ on that gurt mainland and even further afield, Warren ended up with a nice (proper) job, designing and looking after gardens all over the Island. But it hasn’t always been easy. As we all know - there are sunny days, and there are days when it feels like you really shouldn’t have got out of bed.

During the show they’ll tell personal tales of why gardening is so important for mental health; design, draught and bring to life a unique and beautiful garden; share fascinating stories of different gardens, plants and species; and maybe even throw a few songs into the mix.

Join them, and find out if a caulkhead can be green fingered, or if the cabbages will succumb to the mallishags.
