Haven Gardens
My Garden Album 1 Album 2 Album 3 Home

My Hampshire garden was created from a nearly clear plot of land after I moved into my new home, Haven, at the end of February 1998. Since then I have been aiming to use plants that will give me constant interest and colour throughout the entire year. This includes using traditional and contemporary style plants, exotics, fruit and vegetables. The links below lead to three photograph albums that show some of the features and plants in my garden. The first album deals with the early years of garden development (1998-2002), the second with further development and progress (2003-2005) whilst the third shows the latest photographs (2006+). Along with these linked albums there is also an embedded Flash Photo Gallery below showing select photographs. Below that are links to pages on my Gold Medal at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2015 (some updates pending) for the Best Flower Box, my RHS Banksian medals, RHS Orchid Committee awards, My orchids, and the Sundial Garden I designed for my parents. This is followed by a list of publications.
