Hi, my name is Darren and I run Modern Mint - a place for topiary, tools and talks. See for more details. Garden Club Talks (also available via Zoom): 1) What Do I Do With This Space: Ideas on Gardening From Around the World 2) Diluted: How We Use Water In The Garden 3) Clippings: Making and Maintaining Topiary 4) Helping The Honeybee: Plants For Bees 5) A Very British Garden: What Is A Normal British Garden Visit to find out more...

Additional Interests

Spend most of my time making topiary around the country, speaking to groups about gardening or pruning fruit trees and wisteria in winter. 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
