Times Online (UK): 51 Glorious Garden Websites

As an admirer of English gardens, I enjoy reading English gardening magazines, online newspaper articles, and blogs. Recently, Jane Owen, an editor of the Times Online gardening section, posted a list of "51 glorious garden websites." Seeing that most of these were from the UK, they were almost entirely new to me. A particularly inspiring set of websites which I never would have found on my own was the following:

Individual designers whose work I know and recommend
30 Cleve West - brilliant, subtle, sculptural work which has won many Chelsea golds.
31 James Alexander Sinclair - highly original designs on new and historic sites plus one of the most entertaining blogs in the business.
32 Andy Sturgeon - regular Chelsea medalist. Modern designs and planting.
33 Ann-Marie Powell - one of the great underestimated creative forces in the garden works whose practical designs addresses all the senses.
34 Diarmuid Gavin - iconoclastic designs from the garden world’s wild boy.
35 Tom Stuart-Smith - Statesman of the landscape world with elegance has the default position of his designs.
36 Phillippa May - new kid on the block. Landscape architect already transforming private estates in the north of England.
37 Bunny Guinness - excellent practical designs particularly for family gardens. Outstanding planting.
