  • Jamie Butterworth

    Managing Director

    Throughout his career Jamie dreamed of running his own soft-landscaping company, with the sole purpose of bringing beautiful gardens, quality plants and superior service to the industry. In the autumn of 2018 this vision became reality and Butterworth Horticulture was born. His ethos of passion and horticultural expertise forms the mainstay of the business.

    As Managing Director Jamie wears several hats, which extend outside of the day-to-day runnings of the business. As well as heading up Butterworth Horticulture, Jamie is one of eight ambassadors for the worlds largest gardening charity, the RHS. He is also the gardening expert for BBC Radio London, as well as a contributor to Talk Radio and BBC Radio Berkshire. An author too, Jamie’s debut publication ’50 Plants You Can’t Kill’ hit top of the gardening category on Amazon.

  • Hector


    Whether he’s motivating the team, riding shotgun in a van, snoozing under the shade of a tree, helping you with your lunch, or keeping your seat warm; you’re bound to see Hector roaming around somewhere by Jamie’s side.

    A more solitary work ethic to the rest of the team, Hector prefers the easy life sitting on the side lines rather than getting his paws dirty.
