Ade and Sophie AKA Agents of Field burst onto the gardening media scene in 2014 after starting an irreverent blog about their adventures on their urban allotment just outside London. They quickly garnered a loyal following of gardeners and foodies worldwide and in 2016, they won Blog of the Year at the Garden Media Awards. In 2017 their blog was recommended in The Sunday Times and Gardeners’ World Magazine and in 2018 they were finalists in the Green and Eco category at the UK Blog Awards.
At the end of 2018, they decided to fully embrace ‘the good life’ and quit their high-flying film and television careers in London, to move to rural Suffolk, to live a simple life in the country, growing their own food and living in sync with the seasons.
They have spoken at events and venues including the RHS Cardiff Flower Show, The Royal Norfolk Show, Woburn Abbey Garden Show and Gin Temple Norwich, and regularly feature on BBC Radio Suffolk.
They are ambassadors for the charity Greenfingers.
With a passion for plants and a background in television, Ade is a bit of an avant-gardener. He is usually found on the allotment, nurturing his fruit, veg and flowers and capturing these magical, muddy moments on film.
In 2014, Ade took his horticultural know-how to the next level by embarking on some further training with The Royal Horticultural Society at Capel Manor, Regent’s Park. He qualified in September 2015.
You can catch Ade guest presenting on the QVC channel, hosting the horticultural stage at the Royal Norfolk Show, and appearing at events all over the country. He also produces film and video content for outdoor festivals and brands including Woburn Abbey Garden Show, Vitavia, and Welligogs.
