About Terry Walton

Terry Walton was born in 1946 in the Rhondda, and has lived in South Wales all his life. He has gardened on the same allotment since the age of four. Terry's 'working life' was spent for the most part with a local company, where he became managing director. When he retired he was able to focus on his allotment where he was discovered by Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show team. Terry gives updates live from his hillside plot every fortnight. He is also on the Jamie & Louise show on BBC Wales Radio once a month in studio, BBC Radio Hereford & Worc once a month live from the allotment, and makes appearances on Channel 4 Super Scrimpers to give his gardening tips.
