After a brief spell as an archaeologist, he trained as a gardener for the National Trust at Antony House in Cornwall.
After completing the Kew Diploma in Botanical Horticulture, Saul travelled to Australia, Southern Spain and the French Riviera to study and work in internationally-renowned gardens.
Following that, he became Show Manager for RHS Chelsea.
