BBC broadcaster and author Caroline Tilston is holding a garden design advice day in Newport.

Resident garden expert for House Beautiful magazine and author of many books on garden design, Saffron Walden-based Ms Tilston will be at R&R Saggers Plant Nursery from 10am to 3pm on Saturday September 26. There she will be able to answer questions and give advice on garden design.

Ms Tilston said: "Autumn is a great time to rethink you garden, whether it's changing to borders, putting in paths or a complete rejig of the whole design.

"If you're stuck or need inspiration come along for some expert advice."

Caroline Tilston has been designing gardens for over a decade and has written many books on garden design, most recently in the 'Garden Style Guides' series (John Wiley).

After taking a degree at Oxford University, Caroline trained as a gardener with the National Trust and then went on to win a rarely awarded distinction on the garden design course at Writtle College.

She has won RHS awards for show gardens and writes regularly for the national press.

She has a monthly column in House Beautiful magazine and regularly appears on BBC radio gardening programmes.
