Manoj Malde

Manoj Malde is an award-winning garden designer and TV gardener, known for his vibrant style and bold use of colour. Manoj is best known for his presenting work on the BBC garden show Your Garden Made Perfect and Channel 4’s Garden Of The Year, where his infectious enthusiasm has made him a hugely popular part of the programmes. Manoj is also an RHS show judge, RHS ambassador and Chelsea Flower Show medallist.

Manoj attributes his love of colour to his Indian ancestry, as well as his background within the fashion industry, where he worked for 18 years. As a former creative director, with a master’s degree in fashion design from the Royal College of Art, Manoj is highly skilled at combining textures and colours within planting schemes. Manoj describes the design processes behind bespoke gardens and fashion as similar, starting out with themes, mood boards, colour palettes and textures. “Designing a planting scheme is like creating a beautiful silk print,” he says. “I’ve gone from haute couture to ‘hort’ couture.”
