Harry had a late introduction into the joys of being a professional gardener.
Although being an avid gardener most of his life, it was not until the integration of computers into the newspaper industry in 1983 his vocation as a newspaper compositor came to an end.

Enrollment at the newly opened Grovely TAFE College in 1984 began a long association with both the College and as a member of the Australian Institute of Horticulture, firstly as an Associate Member and later as a full Member (after obtaining the necessary academic qualifications).
Harry was, in the very early days of the AIH (Queensland State Council) its Treasurer, a position he held for many years.

For his work within the AIH, he was made a Fellow of the Institute in October 1994.

After many years of part-time study, Harry was awarded the Advanced Certificate of Horticulture (Parks and Gardens) in January 1992.
Now in his eightieth year, Harry is still an active horticulturist, and a keen proponent for the advancement of professional horticulture within the industry.
