ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Jinny Blom is one of the leading garden designers in the UK. Her work features in publications throughout Europe and the US and ranges from town gardens to vast country estates.

Jinny Blom set up her landscape design practice in 2000. Jinny is self-taught and doesn’t confine her creative output simply to the built landscape – more, she tailors her skills to suit the very varied commissions she receives ensuring each is given a unique and specific response. Jinny and her small multidisciplinary team, made up of chartered landscape architects, product designers, architects and artists are currently working on a number of significant landscape commissions, gently and firmly pushing the boundaries of creativity and craft and incorporating unexpected elements of design. “If another art form can be justified within a landscape, then it must be included”
