Alice Bowe's work aims to demonstrate that you don't have to compromise on design in order to create and maintain a greener garden. An artist, garden designer, and author who draws inspiration from all aspects of art, architecture, and design, Alice is passionate about gardens and firmly believes in working with nature, not against it. Her fresh approach to sustainable garden design delivers stylish gardens that use resources efficiently, saving time, money, effort, and materials. A well-known writer on hard-working garden design and planting, Alice regularly contributes to The Times of London and more occasional pieces for other magazines and newspapers, including Gardens Illustrated and The Garden Design Journal. Alice also appears on television and has been on the BBC presenting team for the Chelsea Flower Show.
Alice inherited her green fingers from her grandparents, a talent she later combined with a passion for color. She studied fine art at Oxford University, where she has since given lectures on planting design, and was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2009.
