Garden designer, journalist and television presenter Joe Swift is a very busy man with his diary booked full of garden shows this summer including Chelsea, Hampton Court and Southport.  Despite being so busy he still has time to do some designing.  He recently worked with the fashion designer Zandra Rhodes on a project in Bermondsey has he told Ken Crowther.

Veteran of building gardens at shows is designer Mark Gregory of Landform. This year marks his 26th year at Chelsea, in that time he’s built 90 gardens, not including the trade stands. For Mark, the shows are a good opportunity to market the business but he also gets an adrenaline buzz as he told Ken Crowther.
