Their creator Dr D G (Dave) Hessayon, the son of a Cypriot landowner, was born in 1928 and grew up in Manchester. He read Botany at Leeds University, where he gained his BSc degree.

His books also push gardening chemicals made by a company he worked for. Despite the fact most of these chemicals have been banned now and horticulture has moved on, with this comes his general gardening advice.
