I'm Cherry Carmen, an experienced garden designer and horticulturalist based near Taunton in Somerset. I am RHS qualified and a member of the Association of Professional Landscapers. 

I have always loved being in the great outdoors. Learning horticulture and working in gardens was a natural career move for me and I now have a decade of experience designing, consulting on and maintaining gardens.

I have designed medal-winning show gardens for the APL and Perennial - Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Society for major shows such as RHS Hampton Court and BBC Gardeners World Live. 

I have had my own garden design, consultation and maintenance business, Cherry Carmen Garden Design, since 2013 and do design and consultation work nationwide. 

Away from the garden, I love walking my three dogs in the countryside around my home and I am a trustee of RSPCA West Hatch. 

I would love to talk with you about your garden projects. Contact me.
