Nathan Gamba

Protea Gardens is owned and run by Nathan Gamba, a North London (Bowes Park to be exact) resident originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Nathan has worked in horticulture since he was a teenager with his own lawn-mowing round, and furthered his knowledge by studying at Capel Manor College, a leading college for those interested in plants, animals, flowers, trees and the environment. He has a passion for nature that comes across in his enthusiasm and the results he achieves with even the smallest garden space.

About the Protea

Protea Gardens is named after the Protea flower – a South African national emblem that represents change and hope. The Protea is named after the Greek god Proteus, who could change his form at will, and this is very much the focus of Protea Gardens; changing form and developing function in a unique and personal space.
