Fred Wood joined the RBGE in June 1947 as a labourer, and after two years became a probationer (student gardener). In 1952, now a gardener, he looked after part of the rock garden, part of the pond, and the "Natural Order Beds," which displayed the plant kingdom laid out based on George Bentham and Sir J.D. Hooker's Handbook of British Flora. Under Alf Evans as Assistant Curator, Wood worked as Botanical Foreman in charge of the rock garden, the woodland garden, and the pond. Fred Wood left the RBGE in 1966, and worked variously in West Germany, Scotland, England, and Wales. Fred Wood retired in March 1984.
