About Darren Lerigo

I have always loved working outside and now spend the majority of my time making and maintaining topiary at my company - Modern Mint.

My pruning work can be seen on various TV programmes and in the media. I have spoken alongside Mary Berry, Alan Titchmarsh and Jo Swift at Blenheim Palace, as well as giving talks to garden clubs, WI's, U3A's and charity groups all over the country.

All talks are illustrated with photos on a projector.

I can provide a projector myself, I just need a screen or blank wall to project onto.

Talk length can be adjusted to suit your group, but is typically 50-60 minutes. Questions from the audience are welcome! A table for the projector is also handy. If you wish the talk to be 'stand alone', this is possible too - I often do this at gardening festivals and events, so please just let me know and I can make this work for you, your group and your space.
