At the age of 23 Thomas Pearson launched the appropriately named Tom’s Yard and never looked back. Whilst the main portion of his business is importing quality terracotta pots, he stocks fine olive trees, works with a local workshop producing hand-made garden furniture, dabbles in garden antiques and has a small range of tried-and-tested growing accessories.
Over the coming years his aim is to grow a small business with an unbeatable reputation for personal service and quality pot stock.
Since launching the business, Thomas has been fortunate to work with some very exciting projects... the sort he thought would take years to be involved with! He has worked closely with some of the UK's leading garden designers, advised production companies on set dressing, had his stock featured on national television and even had the business named in a few awards.
Many of his Clients love to stay up to date with his stock and movements; Follow his Instagram @toms_yard to make sure you don't miss out on anything.
Thomas' previous experience was working with Europe's largest retailer of Decorative Antiques and Garden Ornaments, running their main high street showroom. It was here that he developed his knowledge as he assisted Private Clients, Interior Designers and Dealers from around the globe in their hunt for beautiful and authentic pieces.
Prior to this he grew up immersed in the family home interiors business, selling furniture, paints and flooring.
Outside work Thomas is a keen reader, regularly going through books on gardening, and is slowly studying for his Diploma in Garden Design. Gardens aside, Thomas is an active member of Hereford Round Table. A local charitable group fundraising money with the aim to distribute funds around local causes and individuals in need. Here's the gang at their 2023 Rock The Barn fundraiser.
You will often find him with his best friend Leo the Whippet pitter-pattering around by his side. His girlfriend, Goose, is occasionally seen helping him at shows. She brings the looks, he brings the graft!
