The Awards celebrate the best of horticultural communications, recognising the talent, skill and inspiration of garden media professionals.
Lee Burkhill, the Garden Ninja, was recognised for his garden design blog, Youtube channel garden guides, BBC live radio work, and published articles for the RHS during 2016/17.
Lee Burkhill said: “I’ve been absolutely over the moon to be recognised as one of the UK’s best new garden talents this year by the Garden media guild. Having published my garden design guides on my youtube channel, along with my blog and radio work for the BBC helping aspiring gardeners, it’s a great recognition. I’m a great believer that the health benefits of gardening should be available to all. My approach and enthusiasm for creating functional garden design guides enable even the most hesitant gardener to fully realise their garden space!”
