It all started when...

Nina met Matthew in 1997 when they were part of the team who opened Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on London’s Bankside. 

After nurturing a life-long love of horticulture, in 2001 they decided to take the plunge and make it their business. Nina spent the next three years gaining professional qualifications in Horticulture, Plantsmanship and Garden Design from the Royal Horticultural Society and the English Gardening School. In 2004 they launched Nina Baxter Garden Design and haven't looked back!

Show gardens

As well as designing and building gardens across south-east London, Kent, and Surrey, Nina has been lucky enough to work with internationally renowned designers to plant up award-winning gardens at RHS shows including Chelsea and Chatsworth.

Between 2007 and 2010, Nina worked on show gardens for Andy Sturgeon, Chris Beardshaw and Paul Hervey-Brookes and in 2011 she formed a lasting working relationship with Jo Thompson as head of Jo’s planting team, that continues to this day.

sharing the knowledge

Nina also tutors at the London College of Garden Design, and loves passing on knowledge to new students.
