The story of starting a business during lockdown

When Steve Folwell heard about the significant impact lockdown would have on the UK horticultural industry, he put his entrepreneurial hat on and set up a new venture to support growers and gardeners during the crisis.

As a keen amateur gardener and entrepreneur, Steve believed he could help the industry and so he set up Muddy Trowel. The business was launched in April 2020, with a remarkable 14 days from concept to launch. Muddy Trowel has been delivering beautiful, in-bloom plant kits to customers ever since.

Join this webinar to be inspired by Steve's story and hear how he managed to come up with an idea and put it into practice at great speed, during a global pandemic.
