Dilip Lakhani

We are very pleased to introduce you to Dilip Lakhani, Gransnet’s horticultural hero!

Born in Kenya, he spent his childhood surrounded by the richness of East African landscapes, flora and fauna. At the age of 11, he was the youngest ever member of the Kenyan Orchid Society, and an active member of the East African Natural History Society.

It is unsurprising that this voracious love of gardening led Dilip to establish his own garden design practice in 2006. Sinnce then Dilip has been designing gardens up and down the UK and has become Gransnet's gardening correspondent His work draws on his childhood in Africa, but also on his extensive travels around the globe to study the wild habitats of many of our garden plants. You can see some of his beautiful garden designs here, www.diliplakhani.com.
