Arit Anderson Career
Anderson is a garden designer, writer and presenter on BBC Two’s Gardeners’ World. Originally, she worked in fashion for 25 years before turning to agriculture. She managed teams that delivered collections and events across the globe. She also balanced this fast-paced career with interests in well-being, working as a therapist and teaching holistic therapies, which led her to travel extensively to the USA.
It was the joy of having her own garden that enabled Arit to diversify her creative experiences. She found that the visual nature of fashion and the healing properties of her therapies could beautifully meld in the garden. Playing with a new palette of colour and materials in her garden, drove her to explore the unique relationships between her love of plants, people and place. After just one season, Arit knew she wanted horticulture to become her work as well as her pleasure.
In her designs for both private and commercial clients her ethos includes simplicity and environmental sensitivity – affecting her choice of products and plants at source, with regard to their future setting.
Working as presenter for Gardeners World, and writing for national publications has enabled her to publicize issues about the future of gardening in an ever-changing climate, and promote solutions to the wider public.
