Award-winning garden designer Adam Frost has created gardens across the world. His infectious passion, flair for designing timeless spaces and appetite to share his knowledge has made him a popular television presenter, writer and lecturer.
Adam was introduced to gardening at an early age by his Grandparents. In 1991 he started working for Geoff Hamilton at Barnsdale in Rutland. Geoff gave Adam the opportunity to train in garden design and to create many of the gardens that can be found at Barnsdale.
In 1996 Adam established his own design and landscaping business and built show gardens. His first solo Chelsea garden and gold medal came in 2007 and since then he has won a further six Chelsea gold medals.
Adam has been a regular presenter on Gardeners’ World for more than 2 years and also appears on BBC coverage of RHS Flower Shows. His 5-acre garden regularly features on the programme as he continues to redevelop it.

There is always an interesting and full programme of garden visits. Places are always limited and often fill up quickly. Visits are announced in the Newsletter and bookings are by post only. Details will be enclosed with the Newsletter. From 2012, due to the high demand for garden trips, only members will be able to apply in the first instance. Guests will be placed on a waiting list. After 6 weeks from the date of member application, guests will be allocated any remaining places.
This friendly and thriving gardening group was started in 1993 following a series of horticultural courses given locally by Mary Payne MBE, a much respected and well loved garden expert. Such was the enthusiasm stirred up by these sociable and informative weekly gatherings, that several students decided to form a club to enable all garden lovers to meet on a regular basis with like minded people, and be inspired by renowned speakers.
A programme of 10/11 lectures are arranged each year. These are held on the third Monday of the month (apart from December) in the Methodist Hall, Silver Street, Nailsea, 7.30 p.m. for an 8.00 p.m. start. Each lecture lasts around an hour with questions and answers at the end.
The Lectures cover a varied programme to cater for all tastes and are given by local, national and international speakers. From garden design, specific plant groups and travelogues to individual gardens such as Yeo Valley Organic Garden, Sissinghurst, The Shakespeare Trust Gardens and The Bishops Palace Garden, Wells.
Due to our large membership we have been able to attract such well-known horticulturalists as Matthew Wilson, Roy Lancaster, Jekka McVicar and many other excellent speakers.
Day trips to gardens are organised at various times of the year, with the aim of visiting the less well known prestigious gardens that aren’t usually open to the public. Fagus also organises longer visits to gardens further afield, both at home and abroad. These have proved extremely popular with members.
