'Matt's gardening career began as a teenager working on a small farm. He then went on to study at various horticultural colleges and work at nurseries. Matt was honoured in 2000 as Londoner of the Year in the field of Environment and Regeneration, in recognition of his work establishing a successful circuit of Farmers' Markets in the capital. Today his enthusiasm has led him to teaching and he lectures at a South London college.'
Matt James has a passion for small gardens, yards, balconies, etc. that stands him apart from the other celebrity garden designers. His book 'The Urban Garden Bible' is more than just a 'how to do it' tome but a realinsight in to his views and understanding of how to make the most use of small outdoor spaces. He is a great plantsman and this shows in his makeover projects. Matt lives in a flat and just has a balcony so he understands how to be creative in the smallest of spaces.
Matt James is without doubt a Yardz Hero
