News & Dates

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. I have just finished a glorious garden just outside Madrid for an old friend and client with superb views over the landscape, complete with an infinity edge pool, life is never dull!


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


We now have a house and garden in Central France which will allow us to visit clients there far more easily and economically, but the UK will of course remain our design base.


I hope to be seeing my landscape partner, Jo-Anne Hillier in South Africa, Hiro Fukasawa in Japan and Bill McCulloch in California. They are all landscapers and designers and I could not ask for batter friends or colleagues.


As usual I shall be running weekend garden design courses at Barnsdale Gardens with my good friend Adam Frost. Barnsdale was of course the late Geoff Hamilton's famous BBC Gardeners World Garden and I filmed there many times. Geoff sent Adam to study on my Design Course at Capel Manor many years ago and I'm inordinately proud of what he has achieved in the landscape world, both in terms of design and construction. | tel: +44 (0) 7860 716699
