The Artist Garden was a project created for the UK City of Culture in Derry-Londonderry, the project saw Artist Katie Holten design a garden which was built for the City of Culture. Void Derry Gallery were behind the project. I was the Horticultural advisor on the project, Romac Landscapes was project manager. The project saw a formery unused Factory courtyard (which gets no direct sunlight) transformed into a woodland inspired garden, inspired by the phrase '1000 shades of green' and a recent walk I led to Loughermore Forest in County Derry - the ancient woodland around Ashbrook House supplied the Aged Timber and Stones for the garden, plants for the project were sourced through Gardening Express
