Patton was the winner of the Society of Garden Designers' planting design award in 2012.

The Professional Diploma in Garden Design is a one year part time course held at Plumpton College and is aimed at those students wishing to begin a new career in garden design. Stretching over 3 terms, the students design three gardens of varying sizes from a small courtyard to a 2 acre plot.

Hard and soft landscape projects deal with paving and walling and steps alongside plant portfolios of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials.

Various lectures on related subjects delivered by Industry experts include garden lighting by Mike Shackleton, water gardens with Martin Kelly from Fairwater Ltd and design installation work with Cleve West.

Patton commented: "I'm delighted to be asked to lead the planting side of this established course at Plumpton and am really looking forward to meeting the students in September."
