PINK NAILS, PINK HAIR AND FLOWERPOTS FULL OF FLAIR!
Alan Gardner, star of the C4 television series The Autistic Gardener, takes to the road for the first time in 2018 with THE AUTISTIC GARDENER ON TOUR. Since becoming a garden designer in 1986, the multi award-winning gardener with pink hair, has created 40 RHS show gardens, and won numerous awards at Chelsea and Hampton Court.
Alan who has Asperger’s Syndrome and is an Ambassador for The Autistic Society takes inspiration for his unique designs from his other passions – architecture, conceptual art and the wider landscape around him.
In 2016 Alan’s first TV series saw him leading a team of novice trainees, all of whom are on the autistic spectrum to create some truly sensational garden spaces. The show combined his skills as a garden designer with his infectiously enthusiastic presenting style and gift as a mentor. In his most recent series in 2017 Alan used his horticultural skills to transform large outdoor spaces and create bespoke gardens.
THE AUTISTIC GARDENER ON TOUR will give you the opportunity to come along and discover how to make the most of your garden, patio or even your window box and have fun at the same time! Discover where plants come from and where they should go. Learn to love your weeds, nurture your house plants, grow your own food and benefit our wonderful planet.
