Pleased to see my portrait of Beth Chatto used on the cover of her biography, written by Catherine Horwood.

(Sorry for being old fashioned, but the term ‘to pre-order’ is just wrong!).

Nice to have a feature in the spring issue of The English Garden. Juan Carlos Cure’s amazing patio garden in Islington.
I was sad to hear last week that John Brookes, the renowned garden designer, has died aged 84. For those non-gardeners reading this post, he also wrote many books on the subject and received an MBE for Garden Design and services to horticulture in 2004. A portrait of John from the Gardeners’ Hands project in 2008.
