A TALK by an award-winning county garden designer is to take place later this month.

Peter Dowle, of Howle Hill Nursery, near Ross-on-Wye, will be discussing his 2013 gold medal winning Corsican garden, designed for L'Occitane.

Peter has scooped nine gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show which has been part of his life since he first visited with his father aged nine.

More recently, Peter’s tongue-in-cheek 'Credit Crunch Gardens' caught the eye of HRH Prince Philip who, amused by the Banker’s Garden with its monopoly board, asked if he could roll the dice.

The talk takes place on April 24 at the Castle House Hotel in Hereford from 11am to 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £30, including a two-course buffet lunch.
