Meet the Team

Antony  – The Director and inventor of Gardenonaroll. Antony has been passionate about nature all his life since keeping frogs and snakes and growing plants as a child on the family Nursery in Hertfordshire. Gardening is in the Henn family sap, as father Hans set up one of the first Garden Centres in the UK in 1959 (he can still be still seen there today!) Antony is an award winning garden designer, plantsman and broadcaster and came up with Gardenonaroll while helping kids and teachers plant a school garden. ‘’Having fun and success with your first garden gives confidence and can lead to a lifelong interest in growing things which has got to be good!’’- Antony 

Jane  – An RHS- trained horticulturist and brilliant nature photographer Jane keeps our web site and marketing images looking fresh and inspiring. Self- taught in social media our Facebook page is going from strength to strength with over 10K likes and a very loyal and growing following. Having been involved in the business from the concept stage with Antony back in 2009, to now working with Homebase, Jane has seen Gardenonaroll emerge from a crazy idea to a thriving business. ‘’I remember when Antony came home excited about this new idea he’d come up with at the school he’d been helping at. It’s been a fascinating journey to get to where we are now and our team are brilliant’’ - Jane

Jenny – From a background in John Lewis Jenny had always longed to follow her passion for plants and work in horticulture. Having gained her RHS qualification Jenny is now operations manager at Gardenonaroll and is head of marketing to schools and developers. Helping Antony with selecting new varieties for the borders and new planting designs is also an on-going job. ‘’I always longed to work outdoors and with plants so now I have the best of both worlds! it’s great to be involved in such a creative and original business from an early development stage to now’’- Jenny

Adam  – Also RHS trained, Adam is the baby of the team at 22.   Always a keen gardener helping his mum growing flowers and vegetables at home, Adam is our technical whizz kid who keeps our web site up to date and managed. Helping collect, label and box up orders gets Adam out of the office and is constantly learning about plants.  Adam has found the customer feedback fascinating when before and after pictures are sent in. ‘’I love seeing what a difference one of our borders can make to a boring empty garden in only one season, it’s amazing, especially if I remember packing it!’’ – Adam

Angelique – Keeping the office and finances in order is not the job for Antony (he’s kept away as much as possible!)  As Office Manager, Angelique is super organised and has full control of this area of the business, managing customer orders and dealing with suppliers and invoices.  ‘’Seeing the business grow from Antony’s initial idea has been really rewarding as starting any business is difficult in the early days. I really feel this is an exciting time for Gardenonaroll.’’ - Angelique  

Elka – Recently headhunted from a major blue-chip company Elka has settled in nicely as our new head of security. Her experience in the field has given her an insight into how best to tackle difficult situations ‘mostly’ with restraint and dignity. She has a good nose for potential threats and has thwarted many attempts by other dogs to mess on our plants. Her training in Hungary as a gun dog puts her skills way above her contemporaries.
