Freddie was awarded the RHS Young Designer of the Year 2021 following his Gold medal award-winning show garden at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. His environmentally conscious garden On Tropic highlighted a changing palette of plants in a warming climate. The garden also won Best Construction in the category.

Having grown up in London, Freddie chose to swap city life for the Cornish coast, where he studied and worked for eight years, graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Falmouth University. Freddie’s love for the outdoors found him working for an environmental charity. However, his passion for horticulture led him to further study garden and landscape design at the Eden Project, Cornwall.

Freddie is inspired by the gardens of the South West, and these influences are present within his latest designs. Other themes include a focus on sustainability, reflected in the plants, materials and construction methods he chooses to use. Freddie aims to guide people to make the most of their outdoor space and realise its potential to become a place to escape to and bring great joy.
