Harry grew up in a family of horticulturalists and had his hands in the soil from a young age, developing a deep love and connection with the natural world. After working in Australia and across the UK for other designers, landscape firms and nurseries, in 2016 Harry set up a design studio and aftercare company based in London. 

In 2023 Harry’s School Food Matters Garden won the RHS People’s Choice Award and a Silver-Gilt in the All About Plants Category. Other recent successes have been the House & Garden ‘Garden Designer of the Year Rising Star Award’, multiple Society of Garden Designers (SGD) awards and having his work featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

Harry is a Pre-Registered member of the SGD, a regular tutor at the London College of Garden Design, Kew Gardens, and a guest speaker on planting design.

Harry says: “I could not think of a more idyllic way to go to Chelsea – collaborating with the RHS and working on a theme that is quite literally emanating with positivity!”
