A garden is a place to…… Retreat. It should offer intimate and private spaces to relax in. For me, a garden also offers a sense of achievement. I take pride in knowing that I was able to create something that is living and constantly changing.


Any tips for small-space planting?


Get adventurous! I like to fuse multiple plant species to create an assortment of colours, textures and shapes. One of my favourite combinations is a fine grass, such as Zoysia tenuifolia, teamed with Persian shield (Strobilanthes gossypinus), Agave desmettiana and blue chalk sticks (Senecio mandraliscae). 


What will you be doing in the garden come December? I’ll be out in the garden with friends and family making the most of the longer days and warmer nights. It is the perfect time of the year to fire up that barbecue and stock the outdoor bar fridge.
