About me

I  have a busy career as a gardening author, lecturer and speaker. For details of my books and articles, please go to Writing. Most recently, I have been a horticultural adviser on the new edition of the RHS A–Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants.


I have taught garden design and RHS certificate at Warwickshire College, and garden history at the English Gardening School.


I can arrange one-off events at Lamport Hall for interested groups – depending on the size of the group, this can be a half-day or summer evening visit to include talk, garden tour, question and answer session with light refreshments. Smaller groups can consider or a bespoke full-day course or workshop with lunch. Possible topics include garden design, garden history and plant propagation.


We welcome visitors from overseas.


Day visits to the gardens of Lamport Hall and nearby Kelmarsh Hall - including lunch at Lamport - for groups of 20-30 can be organised by arrangement. Please contact me for more details of these.

I lecture and give demos to gardening clubs and other groups, speak at RHS shows and am on the RHS and Cottage Garden Society lists of speakers. For further details of talks, go to Speaking.

For garden design advice, creating planting plans and mentoring for designers who are just entering the profession, please contact me direct.
