Adam John Greathead
     Adam John Greathead was born in February 1990 in Wordsley, Staffordshire, England.1,2 He was the son of John Cyril Greathead and Gay B Mobberley. The following article appeared in the Stourbridge News on 27 July 2012: A YOUNG Stourbridge gardener is growing a reputation as one to watch in the world of horticulture.
Gardening may not be the hobby of choice for most twenty-somethings - but for Adam Greathead nothing beats tending his beloved allotment patches.
The green-fingered 22-year-old took on his first plot at South Road Allotments at the tender age of 12 and since then he’s been a constant gardener.
These days he has two allotment patches at Charles Road Allotments where he grows his own produce for exhibitions and culinary use.
He also keeps chickens and ducks - and has given many veteran growers a run for their money, having won a plethora of cups, shields and medals at horticultural shows across the Black Country and Worcestershire.
Adam, who works at Highdown Nurseries, Sugarloaf Lane, said: “Many people find it unusual as there are not many members of the younger generation which have such an interest in gardening but I would love to encourage more people my age to give gardening a go.”.3 The Stourbridge News reported on 20 March 2014 that Wollaston Gardeners Guild elects youngest ever officer. Adam Greathead has been elected as vice-chairman of Wollaston Gardeners Guild - making him their youngest ever officer at the age of 24. He has also taken over the role of secretary for the West Midlands District of the National Veg Society. Adam is currently writing a series of articles for the society's magazine under the title of 'Growing Pains'.

He has also taken on a number of allotments and has invited Wollaston Gardeners Guild to visit them in an effort to raise money for Diabetes UK, having been insulin injection dependent himself since the age of seven.4 The following article and attached picture appeared in the Dudley News of 9 July 2016:Green fingered Stourbridge gardening celebrity Adam Greathead is set to open his Stambermill garden to the public again tomorrow (Sunday 10 July 2016).
Visitors will be able to admire his spectacular range of plants, bedding displays and additional features which have proved so popular on previous open days.
Adam opened his Stourbridge Road garden in April, attracting around 125 visitors and raising £950 for the Dudley Mind Growing in the Park charityproject.
He said: "The garden has advanced considerably since April and all the bedding displays have been changed.
"I've received bookings from a number of gardening clubs wishing to come and visit this time."
Adam became the youngest ever chairman of Wollaston Gardeners Guild two years ago when he was just 24-years-old.
Since then, Adam's reputation has skyrocketed and he now travels the country giving talks and lectures to gardening clubs and societies.
He admitted: "A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that I would be able to get up and give talks - I just wouldn't have had the confidence to talk in public. Now I just love it!
"I've already been booked up to give six talks next year."
Adam has also recently been appointed as head gardener to John Massey MBE of Ashwood Nurseries.
His 'Duckpools' garden on StourbridgeRoad, Stambermill will be open from 1pm until 4pm on Sunday 10 July 2016.5 Once again Adam announced he was opening his beautiful garden to the public Sunday 9 July and Saturday 29 July and attempting to raise funds for Oldswinford-based charity No Limits which works with people with autism.6 Adam died on 29 October 2017 in Stourbridge, West Midlands, England, aged 27 Despite having trauma in his life – he got Type 1 diabetes brought on by the shock of his dad collapsing when he was younger – he was such a happy person and always brought smiles to our faces.7 The funeral service for Adam took place on 30 November 2017 in Our Lady and All Saints, Stourbridge, West Midlands, England, and was followed by Cremation at Stourbridge Crematorium.7
