In his talk, ‘365 Days of Colour in Your Garden’, BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Nick Bailey discusses how to plant and manage your garden, whatever its size, to ensure year-round colour and interest. Initially explaining simple colour theory principles and how to apply them to your garden, the talk goes on to highlight beautiful plants and planting combinations for every season no matter what type of garden you have.
Nick is an award winning gardener designer, plantsman and presenter on BBC Gardeners’ World, who has designed and managed gardens on four continents across his 30+ year career. He has also appeared on BBC Great British Garden Revival, Big Dreams Small Spaces and The One Show. As former Head Gardener of London’s Chelsea Physic Garden, Nick spent seven years re-designing the gardens and diversifying the plant collection. As well as ‘365 Days of Colour in Your Garden’, Nick has also written two other books, Chelsea Physic Garden – A Companion Guide and Revive Your Garden.
