About Jack Wallington

Biography

Having worked in the creative industries for twenty years I retrained between 2015 – 2017 at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to become a horticulturist and landscape designer, starting my design company full time in January 2018. Writing, art and nature have always come naturally to me – my first loves – and they all pointed to this new career after a key turning point in my life. The combination of growing, showing and explaining what I was doing to help others allowed me to communicate a new approach to gardens I create in my designs. This new wild way connects people to nature deeply and more meaningfully than other gardens can.
