Ewhurst Horticultural Society are delighted to have secured Bunny Guinness to deliver a special talk in March 2024. Very much a household-name, often on the TV and radio, she is a Chartered Landscape Architect of impeccable qualifications and experience, and is an acclaimed Chelsea multi-gold medal winner. After many years in private practice, Bunny set up her own design practice in 1986, which she now runs with her daughter Unity. She has written a weekly gardening column for the Sunday Telegraph since 2000, writes regularly for Gardens Illustrated and the BBC Gardeners World magazine, and has been featured in numerous others. She has also published a number of highly acclaimed books on gardens and gardening, including one on Highgrove in collaboration with the then HRH Prince Charles. In addition to her design work which is very much her core business, Bunny has been a panelist on BBC Radio 4 Gardeners’ Question Time since 1998.

Her experience in the industry over several decades has included working on reclamation sites, renovation of inner city housing estates, planning appeals, sheltered housing schemes, pedestrian precincts, golf courses, farm and estate planting, public roof gardens and of course so many different private gardens. Her own garden in Cambridgeshire is a delightful embodiment of her style, an original but well-organised mixture of miniature ornamental farm, family garden and plantsman’s paradise, all built up on the all-important principles of sustainability and self-sufficiency as well as a need for low maintenance. She opens her garden for the National Garden Scheme.

We can guarantee that Bunny’s talk will be highly entertaining, informative and inspiring.
