Garden Blogging

My approach to garden blogging is really simple.

I aim to provide content that helps gardeners get the most out of their gardens. I know time is precious for most people who garden in their spare time and my blogs/vlogs are here to help you succeed!

I always look at the questions I had when I was starting out and aim to help demystify both garden design and gardening skills. That way you can spend less time struggling to find the information and more time putting those new skills to practice. Most of my guides use my own garden design practice or my very own concept garden the ‘Exploding Atom Garden’ to demonstrate the topics in detail.

Gardening is a life-changing hobby. It frees your mind, destresses you and can bring peace to a hectic mind. So what’s stopping you?

Garden Design Tips

For most people going back to horticultural college to study design or plants for years is not a viable option. That’s where the Garden Ninja comes into help condense that knowledge, experience and skill so you can benefit from it. This will then give you the upper hand when it comes to turning your garden into a haven. Whether its a productive grow your own garden or a super modern chill-out zone. I have the advice to help you achieve your goals. Why trust me? Well, I’m different from a lot of bloggers as I am both an award-winning Garden Designer and writer. Providing not only the theory but demonstrating the skill and practice with my work. I not only explain how to do something but show you with my Vlogs on YouTube.

Show Garden Awards

Show Garden design is a mix of both art, creativity and horticultural knowledge. Mixing all of these into a vision and then project managing it to successful construction. I’ve been fortunate enough to design some show gardens for wonderful clients and sponsors leading to winning the Director Generals Award at Chelsea Flower Show.

Whilst show gardens are the epitome of gardening excellence I still want my garden designs to call to people and encourage them to garden. So even in my show garden designs, there’s take-home tips and scalable ideas for even the smallest gardens. Which is why you will find all the behind the scenes on my show gardens and others to help get you that awesome garden look!

      I don’t know if I’m through to Lee but I just wanted to let him know that his advice about pruning hydrangeas on a youtube video that I have just watched was so clear and reassuring. Excellent. I’m gonna advertise his work to others. I don’t use facebook, Twitter or Instagram so hope he gets this. I don’t seem to be able to e-mail him directly. Keep up the good work! Well done!
