George (Greenfingers) Digwel is a gardener for the Library Gardens. He is very annnoyed by squirrels since they steal his sandwiches. He was the first one to spot Conker dead, and he lends David Rain a shovel for Conkers grave.
David first meets George when he is looking for squirrels. His hut is near the fountain and near Conkers burial tree. His wife Mrs. Digwel bought a dragon from Elizabeth Pennykettle . He is described as short like a gnome with a raspy voice. When David first meets him he has a rip in one of his pant legs and his boots are very large like an elephant walked around in there. Liz jokes that they grew him from a seed. His first and last apperence is in The Fire Within .
