Celebrating life with Geoff Hamilton, Nick Hamilton’s book ‘The Right Genes’.
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a garden lover this Father’s Day, then Nick Hamilton’s book ‘The Right Genes’ is the ideal choice. This beautifully written story of a boy living with his soon-to-be-famous dad tells the tale of growing up as the son of a visionary of sustainable gardening.  Geoff was a firm believer and pioneer in organic gardening and Barnsdale Gardens was his ‘great experiment’ in peat-free and chemical-free growing.  This ethos continues there today.

Geoff presented Gardeners World for 17 years, with his down-to-earth style making him a hit with the viewers. It was here that he continued to present the show, developing the individual garden designs, and experimenting with plants, themes and ideas to inspire the nation to get outside and have a go, hence earning the reputation of being the ‘People’s Gardener’.

‘The Right Genes’ is a witty, happy and joyful excursion into the weird and wonderful journey of the Hamilton family. It shows how the lives of a father and son can follow the same pattern and ultimately mirror each other.
You can buy the book at the shop when visiting the gardens or online at:

There’s plenty to see and do all year round at Barnsdale Gardens!
