The World Horse Welfare Garden          

Adam and Jon would like to welcome you to their new site dedicated to their latest garden at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show 2017. To mark 90 years of one of the world’s leading horse welfare charities, World Horse Welfare, they are exhibiting an Artisan Garden designed to shine a light on the plight of ‘invisible horses’ everywhere, horses abandoned, abused and neglected.

Keep up to date with their latest news here.

This is Jon and Adam’s 10th RHS Show and 6th Chelsea Flower Show and they are delighted and excited to be back for 2017. They have won gold, silver-gilt and silver medals for their Courtyard and Artisan Gardens at Chelsea, together with two ‘BBC / RHS Best Small Garden’ Awards in 2006 and 2007.  Their last garden at Chelsea was in 2013  for children’s charity NSPCC , The Garden of Magical Childhood.  They are known for creating gardens that are strongly traditional that evoke a sense of nostalgia. Many of their gardens feature reclaimed materials and British wildflowers.

Based in Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire the duo are life partners as well as business partners. As well as garden designers they are also ‘hands in the dirt’ practical gardeners running a successful, long established garden maintenance business, AW Gardening Services.
