Professor David Stevens


David is one of the world’s best-known and successful garden designers, with 26 RHS Chelsea medals to his name, 11 of which have been gold, and three Best Garden in Show awards. He pioneered garden design on TV with the acclaimed six-part BBC series, Gardens by later and Gardenwise.

Due to his outdoor lifestyle, David has suffered from various forms of sun damage, including a recent skin cancer diagnosis of (Basal Cell Carcinoma) on his ear.

David says: “I’ve been a garden designer for over fifty years, which has led to the development of lots of sun related damage, which could have very easily been avoided with adequate sun protection. I am very careful now, but do wish I had been earlier in my career. Hopefully I can inspire others to get outdoors but be sun safe.”
