Hi, my name is Darren and I run Modern Mint - a place for topiary, tools and talks. See for more details. Garden Club Talks: 1) What Do I Do With This Space: Ideas on Garden Design from Around the World. 2) Diluted: A garden and its relationship to water. 3) Cool Tools: What Tools To Use (And What Not To!) 4) Helping The Honeybee: Plants For Bees Visit to find out more... I also have a new talk I am currently writing, tentatively titled 'A Very British Garden'.

Additional Interests

Researching and writing a book called 'Helping The Honeybee' for Northern Bee Books. Make and maintain interesting topiaries with the brilliant topiary artist Charlotte Molesworth. Photos of the topiary work in the article from The Guardian - Let me know if you would like help with the topiary in your garden, a talk for your group, or some well-made tools that will last you a lifetime. Many thanks! Darren
