Rory Glanville is a garden designer, illustrator and writer.

Growing up in the Kent countryside, Rory spent his early days exploring the outdoors, but it was his grandmother's Spanish garden in Andalucia that ignited his passion for plants and beautiful gardens. Brimming with plants, it was a serene and secluded paradise.


Now based in London, Rory graduated from the London College of Garden Design in 2019, studying under Andrew Wilson. Prior to this he graduated with a BA in Zoology from Royal Holloway, University of London, then enjoyed 5 years with BBC Gardeners' World Magazine, writing for the website and magazine.

Following Rory's most recent graduation, Rory has been assisting Julia Wylie with garden design and development, who continues to serve as an inspiring mentor.

Through his designs, Rory strives to create gardens that serve as calming refuges for people and wildlife.
