Established in 2004, Todd's Botanics is the creation of Mark and Emma Macdonald who met while studying at Pershore College. Emma specialised in Garden Design, and spent time working at Great Dixter, Beth Chatto, Le Manoir, BBC Gardeners' World and The Flying Gardener, while Mark studied Commercial Horticulture and went on to manage an exotic plant nursery in the Midlands.
