About

Welcome to the online home of hands on horticulturist Rocky Coles MCI Hort. Here within you will find information about me, my work and when time allows, posts on plants, gardens and all things horticultural.

Hi I’m Rocky, a professional horticulturist, maintaining and developing private gardens in Northamptonshire. A skilled gardener who loves wielding a sharp pair of secateurs, transforming shrubby blobs and wild wisterias allowing them to shine. Known to some as the dancing gardener, I am a firm believer of bringing joy and fun to the garden and making gardening accessible for all.

I am also the brainchild behind the Northampton shoeplants project. You can hear more about me and this project talking to Peter of the famous podcast, The Sodshow.

Awards I hold are as follows:

2002 Young Horticulturist Of the Year of Great Britain

Qualifications I hold are as follows:

  • National Certificate in Horticulture
  • National Diploma in Horticulture
  • RHS Advanced Certificate

You can hire me under the guise of Well Planted.
