He has a love of the outdoors and a job in horticulture seemed like the perfect way to enjoy that environment. Having worked for various nurseries and growing and selling his own plants during his teenage years he went on to university to study horticulture. After graduating he started work for a landscape company that were establishing a new nursery and one-stop landscape shop. During his 10 years working for this local nursery he gained much experience in many elements of horticulture including landscaping, shrubs and bedding plants. The company went from strength to strength and acquired a flower bulb import and distribution business, which Matthew was put in charge of. This gave him the chance to develop an in depth knowledge of all things bulbous and a passion for Tulips started to develop. Using the experience gained in sourcing, storing and packing bulbs over those 10 years work Matthew deciding to go it alone and to establish Brighter Blooms in 2010. Initially it was set up as an online bulb supplier but Matthew quickly decided that the Flower shows would be a great place to advertise the business. In July 2011 Walton Flats Nursery became the home of Brighter Blooms. The business started with a green field and 3 glasshouses. Matthew is still planning changes and improvements to the site. After much research Zantedeschia was decided upon as a plant that little attention was paid to at the shows and Matthew started to grow and exhibit them for the first time at four flower shows in 2010. He has been awarded RHS Gold Medal at Chelsea and other flower shows for his display of Zantedeschia many times since then.
