John Massey
Bio: 
John Massey is a nurseryman, plant breeder, plant collector and, above all, a passionate gardener. He acquired Ashwood Nurseries as a teenager in 1968, straight from school and with no formal training in horticulture. John is a specialist in lewisias, cyclamen and hellebores. John is also one of the UK’s leading experts on hepaticas: he has his own private plant collection and has travelled to China, Japan, Korea, U.S.A. and Europe to see them in the wild. He has achieved an impressive record of Gold Medals for hepatica exhibits at RHS London Flower Shows, one of the highlights of which came in 2000 when Ashwood joined forces with the Niigata Nursery Association from Japan. The combined exhibit received the Lawrence Medal, awarded to the best exhibit to be shown at any of the RHS Shows during any one year.
