Penelope Hobhouse

Penelope Hobhouse is an internationally known and respected gardener and garden planning consultant, as well as a best-selling gardening writer. For twelve years she tended and enhanced the garden at Tintinhull in Somerset, which attracted thousands of her followers to visit every year. With a firm underlying structure and carefully calculated vistas, the new garden she has created in Dorset is a fine example of her philosophy in action. Her experience as a designer and plantswoman, combined with hands-on garden making and maintenance, in-depth research into garden history, colour in the garden and the provenance of plants, as well as travels all over the world, make the range and depth of her knowledge virtually unequalled. She lectures widely in Britain, Europe and the United States of America and is a regular contributor to gardening columns and periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic.
