James van Sweden


“I want to put the mystery back into the heart of garden design, where it needs to be. It’s what lures you in through the gate, keeps you moving through the landscape, and fills you with excitement along the way. The sense of mystery is what turns a mere display of plants, paths, and ornaments into an adventure.” —James van Sweden

best garden experiences....

It seems I am rated as '
one of the 10 Best Garden Experiences' in this book just released in the UK..I must say this time around I am very flattered as friend Rory Stuart has a most discerning 'eye'..he has travelled extensively around the world absorbing  gardens and to be slotted in the top 10 bracket  internationally is indeed an honour. Australia's open garden org and the Monty Don show really stuffed up wot!  Dum dee daaaaaa! Oh and please don't forget I did not attend Burnley or Ryde horticultural colleges so one couldn't possibly be a garden designer could one
