About the speaker
Jinny Blom has enjoyed a meteoric rise as a landscape and garden designer since she began her London-based practice in 2000. She works on a wide range of projects, which take her across the UK, Europe, the United States, the Middle East, and Africa. Jinny has exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show four times, and was awarded the coveted gold medal in 2007 for her Laurent-Perrier garden. She won a silver-gilt medal at Chelsea in 2002 for her "Healing Garden," created in collaboration with the Prince of Wales and, in 2013, she designed a garden commissioned by Prince Harry's charity, Sentabale. Jinny has been a columnist for The Times of London and has appeared in a wide range of publications. Her book, The Thoughtful Gardener, was published in 2017 by Jacqui Small.
