About Us

 

Well Grounded Gardens is owned and run by George Daniel Long. George’s background is in the entertainment industry in all areas from musicals and choreography to Film/TV and after a successful career decided to turn his hand to another passion, his garden. George strives to inject the same commitment, professionalism and creativity to garden design that he gave to an acclaimed and accomplished performance career.

 

George qualified in garden design at the world famous English Gardening School, Chelsea with a distinction, studying under Simon Pyle and Rosemary Alexander with additional tuition from designers including: Diarmuid Gavin, Cleve West and Andy Sturgeon. He also gained the Royal Horticultural Society Certificate in Horticulture (with commendation) as well as an NPTC Diploma in Practical Horticulture from Capel Manor College. George’s first show garden “Union Jacked” won best in show at Woburn Abbey Garden Show 2012. Due to the success of that garden, George was personally invited by The Duchess of Bedford to redesign the garden of The Woburn Hotel in the centre of the village and his design will sit in the archives next to those of Humphry Repton.
