If there is one thing I cannot abide are horticultural snobs. Does it frankly matter if a plant is pronounced one way or another, of course not!


I'm currently working on a whole range of projects including gardens all over England and Europe as well as America and other parts of the world. Recent projects have included the redesign of the famous Rose Gardens at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire, a delightful courtyard in central London as well as a superb garden just outside Bristol, which includes a fabulous water staircase, pleached Hornbeam Walk and split-level terraces.


My latest book 'The Room Outside', published by Jacqui Small is selling well, all over the world!


As usual I shall be running weekend garden design and planting courses at Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland. Barnsdale was of course the late Geoff Hamilton’s famous BBC Gardeners World garden and I filmed there many times. Geoff was a good friend and it is always a pleasure to run my courses in his gardens, now run so ably by his son Nick. | tel: +44 (0) 7860 716699
