Justyn Taylor

I started out as a kid helping my granddad in his veggie garden, and decided that gardening was my dream career. I started training as a horticulturalist when I was just 16, and in the last 30 years I’ve worked across a range of garden centres across Sydney, the NSW South Coast, London and Jersey in England’s Channel Islands! I’ve since found my home with Flower Power, and as the company’s dedicated Greenlife Buyer, I travel the country looking far and wide for the best quality plants to range our stores, while helping our customers to solve their gardening problems. I’m also a proud Dad of two beautiful girls, who both love growing their own veggies!
