Design and Landscaping

Our expert design services include concept planning, construction management, planting and maintenance. We have a diverse portfolio ranging from a two-tiered Chelsea rooftop garden to a country estate olive grove. We undertake garden design commissions throughout the UK; often in the South-East, London, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk regions. Specialising in roof top gardens throughout boroughs of London including Chelsea and Kensington, Mayfair, Holland Park and Westminster.

Our Nursery

At Todd's Botanics we specialise in drought tolerant herbaceous and architectural type plants and trees which are either grown by us or hand selected from Europe's specialist suppliers. We stock a wide range of ancient olive trees, palms, box, bay, yew, tree ferns and bamboo, as well as succulents, grasses, ferns and other quality perennials. Please note we only sell through shows and our website.

Our History

Established in 2004, Todd's Botanics is the creation of Mark and Emma Macdonald who met while studying at Pershore College. Emma specialised in Garden Design, and spent time working at Great Dixter, Beth Chatto, Le Manoir, BBC Gardeners' World and The Flying Gardener, while Mark studied Commercial Horticulture and went on to manage an exotic plant nursery in the Midlands.
