My name is Robert Hanchet.

I have a Foundation Degree in Horticulture from Writtle College (with Distinction).

I have been gardening professionally for 10 years, and have always been passionate about plants and gardens, especially in the ways plants are combined together for contrasting or harmonious colours and textures.

Some things I like: 

Exotic and unusual plants and lots of them.

Naturalistic planting.

Simple formal gardens with a limited colour palette.

Wildlife-friendly gardening.

Large colourfully planted containers.

But of course, what matters for your garden is what you like. I start the design process with a list of questions and images to determine your preferences.


All the photographs on this site are my own (unless stated) and show designs and plant combinations created (or co-created) by me.
