My name is Darren. I am a gardener who specialises in topiary and pruning.

I work for keen gardeners and designers who want Modern Topiary in the UK and New York.

You can watch my ‘Topiary Provocations’ for free at Garden Masterclass. Or rent The Modern Topiarist to learn about topiary tools, plants, technique and design…

Read my thinking on Modern Topiary in Gardenista or see pruning work in The Guardian. I’ve discussed the best secateurs to use in The Telegraph.

Finally, I share practical skills in workshops at Waltham Place for The European Boxwood & Topiary Society & teach students at The English Gardening School in Chelsea.
