Joe also anchors The BBC coverage of The Chelsea Flower Show and other Royal Horticultural Show programmes and has presented several gardening series over the years. He also writes a weekly for the Times and Radio Times Magazine and has written eight books – the most recent a series of Expert Guides for Collins. 

He has won design awards including a Chelsea Gold Medal and Society of Garden designer awards.

With his expert designer hat on, Joe will be giving a talk on Garden Design in the demonstration area in the Crafts and Gardens Marquee. Offering a sneak preview of the content, Joe said: "Most gardeners can’t see beyond their rectangular plot. I’ll be considering layouts, plants and planting design as well as how to style a garden to get a designed look without having to spend a fortune".
