John Rowland

“I am a trained Ecologist with a deep passion for the natural world.  Gardening helps me interact with nature on a daily basis.  My goal is to design gardens that are full of interesting attractive plants that support our native wildlife, as well as looking amazing!”

John then moved to Colchester where for twelve years he successfully taught science to A-Level standard and horticulture to Level 3 to a high standard, giving him an in-depth knowledge of plant science and husbandry.

John has designed and created many wildlife gardens, including the garden in Wivenhoe (near Colchester) that was filmed in the BBC series Glorious Gardens from Above.
