I exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show 2008. I was there to demonstrate my latest multi list, interactive UK plant advice and pruning guide CD-ROM. I tested it by making a list of Gold winning Cencer Research Garden designed by Andy Sturgeon and was pleased that most of the plants he used in his garden are included in the CD-ROM.
These are the plants he used:-

Neil, it must be so satisfying when you know that your software covers such a popular range of plants?

Did you feel that Chelsea was the same this year as normal?

Welcome to Paul-Mark and thanks for sending out the message.

You will all be pleased to note that the bug that was not allowing the new activity to show up on the main page has been fixed which is great.

This is by far the largest group on the site and I am really keen to ramp up activity because I know that you all have something to share and we all have something to learn.

Please feel free to link to anything that helps your posting and that includes anything you have on your personal sites.

I am working hard in the background to optimise this site and the main Landscape Juice blog so our members can uniquely benefit from the vast amount of juice that has been accumulated.

Please add experiences, photos or information that is relevant to everything that we will likely encounter on a daily basis and draw in the key words.

For example, if you design with Google Sketchup then link to it. If it is on your personal site or on your profile on the LJN then that is fine.

If you are talking about another member then link to his or her profile on the network or if you want to highlight a photo then do that too as explained by Craig McGinty.

Neil, impresive results from your test.
Looking at your web site, what is the difference between the £39 and the £49 versions?

I am creating a new website celebrating well designed gardens, and lamenting badly designed ones. I am looking for pictures of really well designed gardens, either your own or garden designed by others. The design can be either from a qualified designer or self taught naturals...and I will credit any pics I use and provide a link from the pic straight to your website. If anyone wants to contribute and/or comment on the website, I am open to suggestions and articles of interest on garden design. It would be great if you could give me a short summary of what you think constitutes good garden design. This purpose of this website is to raise the profile of good design and quality construction and to educate the public about the unreliable results they can expect if they do not choose carefully who will design and build their gardens. If you know of any really good and little known landscapers and amazingly talented designers that would be great too and I will feature their work alongside the more famous names. You can email me at When the website is finished I will post the address here.

Who is going to be the judge of what constitutes good design?
Comment by Susan Gallagher on January 6, 2009 at 20:27
I am asking for contributions, so that its not just my opinion....have a sense that good design can go beyond personal taste...there's examples of good design I don't necessarily like but I can see they adhere to sound design principles. Its an ambiguous area I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that, and it will basically be my own wee opinion at the end of the day, not the definitive guide or anything!

Hi. I am keen to put forward a few images, pictures or plans. I have installed for many designers including Cleve West and have a passion for design myself.
