This blog is a personal platform I use when occasion presents, and when I feel inspired to record a garden experience or create an article.
I have always worked with and been fascinated by plants, and have an endless appreciation for gardens and nature. Be they new, polished show gardens or age old historic landscapes, I’ll be drawn by the lines and the structures, captivated by the architecture and social history, and will be magnetised by the plants in all their varied forms and incredible beauty.
In a professional capacity, I’ve worked across numerous English counties and built experience in the management and restoration of historic gardens and landscapes. My work is precise, both formal and wild, and I care: for presentation, for ecology, and for the spirit of place in each location.
In recent years I’ve broadened my experience to include engagement and interpretation of gardens, and have worked with numerous curators, artists, designers and engineers to place art in delicate landscape settings. Managing the demands of restored gardens with modern access and promotion has become something of a way of life for me, and I look forward to many more years working in this field – balancing access and engagement in gardens, with horticulture and honest, down to earth gardening.
Over time I hope the collection of articles and images on my Gardening Ways blog will grow, to provide a window on how I view the world and its #GardeningWays
Enjoy… and if I can be of service do let me know!
