Gardening Lecturer - Roddy Llewellyn

Gardening is my life, my REAL life and has been since my early years.

When I was 3 nanny gave me a packet of annual aster seeds, and I watched them grow with fascination. The magic of plant growth has never left me.

In my 20's I studied horticulture at Merrist Wood Agricultural College in Surrey, and am lucky to have inherited my mothers eye for proportion and perspective. That, together with my extensive plant knowledge gleaned over the years, and a good sense of scale, I am able to metamorphose any plot of land into something very special.

An example of this would be my own garden;

Here is a view of my garden in the Cotswolds, which I completely transformed.
