Will Ingwersen (7 May 1905 – 14 June 1990), nurseryman and alpine specialist of renown. Will won numerous gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show and wrote or co-authored many books which can still be found in second hand shops - in some cases at a premium. An occasional broadcaster on shows such as the BBC's Gardeners' Question Time, Will is remembered for his contribution to alpine and rock gardening. The nursery founded by his father ceased to trade in November 2008 when his half-brother Paul retired. Will was a past president of Horticultural Trades Association, and Vice-president of both the Alpine Garden Society and the Royal Horticultural Society.
