Adam the Gardener
About this deal
In the 1940s, Adam the Gardener was a national treasure. Each week in the Sunday Express, he advised gardeners exactly what to plant and how - from carrots in the last week of May (but 'do this after sunset, when there is less chance of trouble from the carrot fly') to lily-of-the-valley in the final week of November. And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and take care of it. Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to farm the land and to take care of it.

There can be no doubt that Adam had the most promising future ahead of him and his death is the cruellest of blows, not only to John and the Ashwood team but to the world of horticulture. We offer our deepest sympathy to his parents John and Gay, their loss is unimaginable. The pinnacle of his career came when Adam was introduced to John Massey on a visit to ‘John’s Garden’. The two recognised in each other kindred spirits, sharing a deep love of plants as well as a desire to showcase both imaginative garden design and the skills of good gardening practice. I have quite fallen for Adam -- his stylish waistcoat, encyclopaedic knowledge and use for everything -- and constantly find myself thinking "What Would Adam Do?" as I go about my daily gardening business.'

Adam’s funeral will take place at 11am on Thursday November 30 th 11am | Our Lady and All Saints Catholic Church, New Road, Stourbridge DY81PQ And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. It is only early days in this garden, but as you can imagine my head is buzzing with ideas,' Adam previously told Gardeners' World viewers. 'I've started my veg garden and I think the first thing I want to do over the next couple of months is go and visit other veg gardens to get some inspiration. Here, it's just about slowing down, seeing what comes out of the ground and then we can work out how to move forward.'And the Lord God took the man whom he had formed, and placed him in the garden of Delight, to cultivate and keep it. He was a remarkable young man with a passion for gardening that had begun at an early age. He acquired his first allotment at the tender age of 11 and ran a small business selling hanging baskets and bedding plants to his teachers at Hagley Catholic High School. His zeal for horticulture at school was recognised in 2005 when Adam was awarded the Princess Diana Memorial Award which honours children who inspire the lives of others in the classroom and community.

He was appointed secretary to the West Midland district association of the National Vegetable Society when he was only 23, serving two years in this role, during which time he became a regular contributor to Simply Veg magazine.

As Adam continued work on his garden, we saw him plant a new tree just in time for autumn. He chose Euonymus — a spindle plant that will grow to around three metres. Flag as inappropriate Adam has been looking after our garden for over 10 years. He is a great gardener and very reliable, our garden always look very healthy, tidy, well tended. Pulpit Commentary Verse 15. - Having prepared the garden for man's reception, the Lord God took the man. "Not physically lifting him up and putting him down in the garden, but simply exerting an influence upon him which induced him, in the exercise of his free agency, to go. He went in consequence of a secret impulse or an open command of his Maker" (Bush). And put him into the garden; literally, caused him to rest in it as an abode of happiness and peace. To dress it. I.e. to till, cultivate, and work it. This would almost seem to hint that the aurea aetas of classical poetry was but a dream - a reminiscence of Eden, perhaps, but idealized. Even the plants, flowers, and trees of Eden stood in need of cultivation from the hand of man, and would speedily have degenerated without his attention. And to keep it. Neither were the animals all so peaceful and domesticated that Adam did not need to fence his garden against their depredations. Doubtless there is here too an ominous hint of the existence of that greater adversary against whom he was appointed to watch.
