Chris Baines: Environmentalist, author and broadcaster

Chris Baines has been a leading champion of wildlife gardening for more than 40 years.  He first created a “Rich Habitat Garden” on BBC Gardeners’ World in 1979 and his BBC film Bluetits and Bumblebees first inspired viewers to garden with nature back in 1985 – the year Chris created the first-ever wildlife garden at Chelsea Flower Show.  His best-selling book “How to Make a Wildlife Garden” has never been out of print since then, and the fourth edition, expanded and redesigned, is now published by the RHS as their “Companion to Wildlife Gardening.”  

Chris is an independent environmental adviser to industry and government.  He is a national Vice President of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, winner of lifetime achievement medals from both the RSPB and the British Association of Naturalists, Patron of the Wildlife Gardening Forum and an adviser to the National Trust.

Chris is an award-winning writer and broadcaster.  He was one of the original presenters of BBC Countryfile, his book The Wild Side of Town won the UK conservation book prize, his Children’s TV series The Ark won the International Wildscreen Award, and his 2019 film The Living Thames has won festival prizes across four continents.   

Garden designer and broadcaster

A celebrated designer, plantsman, author and broadcaster, Chris Beardshaw has over 40 years’ experience in the horticultural world. An RHS Ambassador and a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4 Gardeners' Question Time, Chris trained in Landscape Architecture and Horticulture and lectured at Pershore College. Renowned for his outstanding perennial plantings, Chris has won close to 40 industry awards, including 15 RHS Gold medals (10 of which at Chelsea Flower Show), 6 RHS 'Best in Show' and 6 RHS/BBC People’s Choice Awards.
