About Cox Creative Gardening

James Cox Dip Hort

My passion for gardening has been with me since a very young age and started professionally at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens when I was just 17. A position at Highgrove came next and really determined my approach to gardening from then on. Working with such passionate gardeners as the Prince of Wales, Rosemary Verery, Lady Salisbury and Sir Roy Strong has been hugely influential in my career. I went on to work for the National Trust in Cornwall and became Head Gardener at Little Compton Manor in the Cotswolds for 7 years. I am probably best known for my work at the Yeo Valley Organic Garden. I now work on a part time consultancy basis for the Organic Garden at Holt Farm, giving numerous talks and tours of the garden and educating people of all ages about organic gardening.

James Cox - Creative Garden DesignerOver the last few years my work there has featured in many garden magazines, including The English garden, Gardens Illustrated, The RHS Garden magazine etc. I have also written for Grow your own magazine monthly and have had my composting techniques published by Sarah Raven in her column in The Saturday Telegraph.

Megan Cox HND Hort

Megan Cox - Creative Garden DesignerI started my outdoor career at a young age with studying for an HND in countryside management and rural studies.

My interest in plants and design lead to enrolling a couple of years later at Pershore College, where I studied for another HND, this time in Horticulture and garden design. I went onto work for Sir Martin and Lady Wood in Oxfordshire and Northwick Park in the Cotswolds.

I have been designing and maintaining gardens
in Somerset for the last 9 years and currently I
am working with clients in Wedmore, Langford
and Axbridge.
