Book onto our Open Evening on Thursday 9th February to meet the tutors, see past student work and find out more
Caroline is honoured and very excited to have been invited to design and build the celebrity stage for the first festival to be held at the royal gardens at Highgrove. The development is going well and she has relished to opportunity to work closely with the team on 'Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated' -
Kate Durr, who graduated from our One Year Professional Garden Design Course last year is now Creative Director of the festival and there is a great satisfaction in seeing past students leave us and go on to do such wonderful things. If all that was not enough Caroline is so delighted to be invited to also speak at the event itself -
She is in some extremely talented and much loved company as the celebrity speaker list includes many of her much respected gardening heroes -
The Corinium Museum
We had a wonderful trip to the Corinium Museum with the One Year Garden Design students. Emma Stuart gave an extremely thorough and informative brief not only covering the all important client and site information but also interwoven with amazing mythological tales and information.
There was the chance to be inspired by the very many ancient artefacts on display -
We are extremely grateful for this great opportunity which came about following a chance meeting at The Cheltenham Literature Festival a couple of years ago when Caroline was building a garden there. We can't wait to see what the students come up with and Caroline is tempted to have a go herself!
Many thanks to Slimbridge Parrish Council for the opportunity for our students to submit design ideas for an application to redesign the Slimbridge roundabout. It’s early days but we are hoping that we can develop a cunning and beautiful plan to redevelop the space ( on a minimal budget) to reduce necessary maintenance of the space going forward. Our aim is to radically reduce the cost of future maintenance as well as creating something that benefits the local environment. We are proud to be invited to partake as the roundabout acts as an important feature in the local community -
We adore this kind of project. Great design does not rely on weighty budgets and using only the most expensive materials -
Cotswold Garden Design Project

Congratulations Jane Grimes & Sue Parry current One Year Garden Design students
Jane’s project 3 master plan with Sue’s additions has now been accepted and signed off by the Corinium Museum. The next exciting stage will be their design forming part of the planning application. Sue and Jane will also be employed as consultants going forward with the project. All this before they have even graduated.
Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated an amazing experience for all.
A very special thank you to all of our fantastic student volunteers who helped to build and plant up the
speakers’ stage and man our pop up shop during the show itself. We couldn’t have done it without you. We received a fantastic reaction to the stage and our contribution to the show. Caroline loved being one of the speakers and working with the whole team at Highgrove.
