Husband-and-wife team Isabel and Julian Bannerman are the ultimate gardening multi-taskers. Their stellar CV includes projects for Lord Rothschild at Waddesdon Manor, Prince Charles at Highgrove and, next year, the challenge of the commemorative garden at the site of the former World Trade Center in New York. Unique in their field for combining both gardening and architectural prowess, their current project is a new garden and faux tumbledown cloister (“we have a passion for ruins,” says Isabel) for Jigsaw owner John Robinson’s house in Wiltshire. “It’s like an Oxford quad but with a hell of a lot of flowers,” says Isabel, “sort of formal romantic, with lots of heavily scented roses and peonies.” And the Manhattan project? “Quite the opposite. An abstract garden with curvy clipped hedges and stone benches.”
