Sue Gray

Coming from a farming family in Perthshire Sue worked in a large Edinburgh private practice as a Landscape Architect for 20 years prior to conceiving Damhead Nursery in 2005. A closet gardener at heart - drove the wish to create Damhead Nursery spurred on by a lifelong passion for plants and growing things, particularly varieties that thrive here in our wonderful Scottish climate. A vision to promote Native varieties and locally grown stock has led the Nursery in 2024 to expand to create space for our home grown growing stock on site.

In 2023 the Nursery diversified to include ‘Edinburgh cut flowers’ allowing Sue to indulge in a particular passion for growing cut flowers for bouquets and vases. 2023 also saw the start of a series of workshops on the Nursery with Sue promoting classes particularly for all with Assisted Support Needs – proving very popular getting the message out there- ‘Plants and spending time around plants is good for the soul!’

Plant Nursery Assistant

Jet Haddow

Jet started at Damhead Nursery in March 2024 after seeing the position advertised on her Universities jobs page. Jet wanted to work somewhere that related to her field of study and Damhead was the perfect fit! Jet is currently studying HNC Horticulture at SRUC in Edinburgh and will going on to do HND Horticulture (Production Science) and perhaps the degree beyond that.

From a young age Jet loved the outdoors and spent as much time outside as she could. As a teenager in a big city it was impossible to get a paper round so Jet would chap the doors asking if people wanted any gardening done and make herself some pocket money. When Jet left school she did a year in Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline, working with Fife Councils grounds maintenance team to look after the park. Jet then ended up in hospitality for a long time, including some years in Canada. After working though the pandemic in a well-known coffee chain, Jet decided it was time to get out and go back to her roots (no pun intended), and here she is!
