Photographer credits


A picture speaks a thousand words

It's our unashamed intent to lure you into the garden by showing you how extraordinarily beautiful it is. To do this, we use images captured by amateur and professional photographers who are inspired here.

The garden changes daily. In the summer it changes totally every two weeks. It would be impossible for us to capture these changes if it wasn't for the generosity in time, skills and spirit of photographers who are inspired here, and who share their images with us for free.

Here are the people we all have to thank for capturing the spirit of the garden and a few of their images.

Mark Bolton - professional garden and lifestyle photographer

Petra Hicks - former garden student at The Garden House and professional gardener at Saltram House, Devon

John Richmond - Garden House volunteer, professional photographer and ecologist

Philip Smith - professional garden photographer

Sue Thacker - Visitor Services Assistant at The Garden House
