TV presenter Joe Swift digs deep to reveal his fascinating story from his Rock ‘n’ Roll youth to becoming one of the country’s top Garden Designers. Hear what really happens behind the scenes at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Gardeners’ World, and find out what it takes to get a Chelsea Show Gold Medal!

His TV credits include Gardeners’ World, and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and he is a regular columnist for The Times and Gardeners’ World magazine.

Joe will share all this with you, taking questions on his life and career, but warns that answering questions on dead plants isn’t going to be top of his list!
