We are delighted to offer an exclusive evening with
Roger Platts at his prestigious seven-acre nursery
site in the Edenbridge countryside. His own private
garden ‘Leydens’ at the nursery site will be open
exclusively for guests to explore and enjoy. Guests
can enjoy a wide range of shrubs and perennials
including a late summer flowering border adjoining
a wild flower hay meadow and kitchen garden.
Our host Roger will talk on The Principles of
Garden Design.
Roger trained in horticulture and started his garden
design business in 1989. He has led a flourishing
nursery and design office since 1996 and has
created six gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower
Show winning five gold medals, a Best In Show in
2002 and People’s Choice in 2010, since 1995.
As one of the most respected and demanded plantsmen and designers in the UK, Roger is a regular judge and moderator at Chelsea and the
other RHS Shows. He has also been a mentor
for BBC Gardeners World Live, and was recently
appointed to the RHS Gardens Committee as a
Gardens Adviser for the RHS Garden Wisley.
