About Me

I am Features Editor for The Garden, where I have worked since 2002 when I first joined as Trainee Horticultural Journalist. My role is wide and varied but chiefly involves planning and selecting the future content of the magazine, as well as day-to-day jobs of commissioning authors, editing and helping with image selection. I also write several features each year, and organise and oversee photo shoots for features such as the nursery visits. I have a strong background in horticulture, having completed a BSc (Hons) in the subject at Wye College in Kent, 2 years of training as a student at RHS Garden Wisley and 4 years working with a landscaper/garden designer. I have long been interested in a wide range of hardy and tender plants, and grow an eclectic selection in the walled garden and glasshouse at my home in Peterborough.
