Baz Grainger

In 2000 Baz Grainger visited RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the first time. This ignited a long-term passion for garden design that eventually led him to change career and retrain in 2017, after working in the fashion industry for over 20 years.

Marrying his passion for fashion and garden design, Baz honed his skills in the industry and joined the Landform Consultants design team in 2023 as a landscape garden designer. Baz completed his first ever show garden at RHS Hampton Court in 2021 and was delighted to receive a Silver medal and Best Global Impact Garden for The Fashion Footprint Garden.

Baz has worked extensively on several other RHS Chelsea Gardens, including, The Parsley Box Garden, 2021. (Silver, People’s Choice), Guangzhou China: Guangzhou Garden, 2021 (Gold, Best in Show), The Place2Be Securing Tomorrow Garden, 2022 (Gold) and ‘A Letter From a Million Years Past’, 2023 (Gold).
Baz says: “After visiting RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2000 I was obsessed with learning about as many plants as possible, and immersed myself in garden design. I have visited every RHS Chelsea since, and moved from fashion to garden design. I have always been fascinated by the relationship between man-made and natural, and love to play with this in all my designs – a structured space in a wild setting, or a wild space in structured setting. I love to explore buildings and their relationship to landscape and garden.
“My desire to design a RHS Chelsea show garden was sparked on my first visit and it’s never waned.  RHS Chelsea is the most high profile Flower Show in the world and, as such, it attracts pioneers and professionals at the very top of their game.  I consider it a real privilege to be part of, especially with a garden that I have designed. I have been working with Killik over the last year and I am thrilled to be able to bring the Killik story to life at the show.”
