    How do you choose 100 Top Gardeners when the variety is so wide spread and the criteria so variable. This is just one list but I am happy to augment and modify the list so send in a comment if you want to nominate someone else. As you can see I couldn’t stick to just 100 and there are lots more I have missed.

    The order is not a ranking in any shape or form except those with obvious links to articles within Gardeners Tips have been put at the top.

    Plant hunters may be under represented as are some of the financial backers of large garden and landscape projects. In future lists there may be fewer gardeners who write and definitely fewer presenters who may or may not garden but for now the list will have to do.
