Making the Modern Garden - a talk by Andy Sturgeon

This informative and entertaining talk kicks off with a whirlwind tour of the history of garden design cramming over 2000 years into a few minutes to explain how modern gardens evolved and how my own work fits into garden design as it is today.  The main part of the talk, which is woven with anecdotes, focuses on my own portfolio and journeys from tiny roof gardens to country gardens via Chelsea Flower Show and overseas.

Andy Sturgeon is an internationally renowned garden designer and winner of Best Show Garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2019. Inspired by art and architecture his work explores the relationship between plants and structure and the wider landscape.
