Andy Sturgeon

Andy is one of the UK’s leading garden designers.  His modern designs are a fusion of traditional materials and contemporary styling which have become known for their timeless architectural qualities and innovative planting.   Commissions include unique roof gardens, large country gardens and commercial schemes. 

Andy has won Best in Show and 6 RHS Gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012.  Both The Sunday Times and House and Garden Magazine placed Andy in the Top Ten list of designers in Britain.  Recent accolades include winning the Gardening World Cup in Japan, a Gold Award at the Singapore Garden Festival 2012 and a Gold Award at Suncheon Bay Expo South Korea 2013. 

He has presented gardening programmes for all the major terrestrial channels including Chelsea Flower Show for the BBC for the past 7 years.  Andy is a freelance journalist and has previously been a columnist for the Guardian, Daily Mail, Daily Express and Sunday Times. 

His first book Planted gave the plodding world of garden publishing a kick up the backside with its ground-breaking approach and fresh outlook and was widely acclaimed both here and abroad.  His second book Potted achieved the seemingly impossible by revitalising the tarnished image of indoor plants making them both stylish and desirable.  A third book on garden design, Big Plans, Small Spaces was published in Spring 2010.
