Tim Hubbard is a former award-winning BBC presenter and journalist who has lived and gardened in Cornwall for over forty years. He now interviews at Literary Festivals around the country, guides private garden tours and also writes books as well as for newspapers and magazines including BBC Countryfile and RHS's The Garden. With his architect husband Nick Purchase, Tim is creating a new clifftop garden facing the Atlantic Ocean and is quickly learning to love any plant which can survive salt water spray and storm force winds! Jo and Rob Whitworth are award-winning garden photographers living in Cornwall. Their evocative images feature internationally in a wide range of both print and digital media, including books and magazines, cards and product packaging, and conceptual creative imagery.
