Danny Clarke is a British Garden Designer and TV presenter who shot to fame as BBC’s Instant Gardener, having started his own bespoke garden design company, the Black Gardener, in 1997. Currently, he can also be seen on ITV’s Love Your Garden, alongside Alan Titchmarsh.

Since his debut on television as the BBC’s Instant Gardener in 2015, Danny has graced our screens with a host of popular garden makeover shows and horticultural advice. More recently, Danny co-presented Filthy Garden: SOS on Channel 5.

Danny is passionate about making a difference to climate change and community integration. He is known for his charismatic and fun approach to garden design which is affordable and desirable to people of all ages. ‘Having access to a garden should be a right, not a privilege’ and his biggest wish is that we all make the most of our green spaces for the health of the planet, our communities, and our souls. Following his passion, Danny co-directs CIC Grow To Know, who are committed to bringing horticulture to young people and disadvantaged communities. The Team at Grow To Know we’re awarded a Silver-gilt Medal for their garden ‘Hands Off Mangrove’ – which is currently in development to be moved into the wider community for everyone to enjoy.
