This varied collection of plants and gardens photos were taken in very diverse locations. From John Brookes’ own garden Denmans, to a branch of Homebase.

The Hampton Court and Chelsea photographs are part of a Dorling Kindersley commission to shoot gardens to appear in designer John Brookes’ book Small Garden.

Some of the close-up detail photographs of colour and texture were also used in Diarmuid Gavin’s gardening books.
