My Brand Story
Where gardens & advice are grafted together
I want to put the best tools in one hand, and the best knowledge in the other. Dan Cooper Garden is a unique destination where high-quality gardenware overlaps with sage advice and thoughtful inspiration. I love helping people find joy in their gardens, whether they have acres of open land in the countryside or a sun-drenched balcony in the city.
Unless you’re a seasoned gardener or landscape designer, it can be difficult to know where to go for advice. What makes Dan Cooper Garden different is that I teach people how to use the things I sell. Seeds and secateurs appear alongside tips for planting and pruning; and pots and garden furniture are presented along with ideas for hosting an al fresco lunch.
Founded by The Frustrated Gardener
Dan Cooper is a plantsman, presenter and publisher of the acclaimed blog, The Frustrated Gardener. In 2012, he began documenting his adventures of planting two tiny coastal gardens in the bustling seaside town of Broadstairs, Kent. Dan was widely celebrated in the press for creating a “subtropical paradise dominated by dramatic colours and shapes”, The Frustrated Gardener climbed to become one of the most popular gardening blogs in the UK.
After a decade of sharing his love of gardening, he took the natural next step and launched Dan Cooper Garden – the first retailer of its kind. He now uses his personal experience to select the finest garden products and pair them with expert advice, all in one place. In his spare time, Dan can be found amongst the dahlias in his allotment or surrounded by a jungle of foilage in his home garden at The Watch House, which he shares with his partner John and his two pedigree mongrels Max and Millie.
