Alan Gardner is an award-winning garden designer.  But he’s no ordinary gardener. Alan credits his success to what he calls ‘his gift,’ the fact that he has autism.

“Not a lot of people know that mathematical formulas occur in flowers, stamens, petals, leaves,” says Alan, “and from these mathematical sequences you can create patterns to actually construct brilliant gardens.”

Convinced he’s not the only autistic gardening genius out there, Alan’s taking on five autists, who are also keen gardeners, to unlock their horticultural potential and unleash their talents on Britain’s gardens.

Alan and his team take on the unloved back gardens of four fee-paying clients in a bid to transform them into spectacular, magical gardens. And the results are astounding.
