A Little About Me

It's ALL about Gardening

I am totally honoured to be listed in the 5 women influencers in horticulture by Grow Your Own Magazine.

I have been a garden lover since I was a child, enjoying my parents Norfolk kitchen garden & learning organic gardening methods from my Uncle.


I live & breathe gardening including hosting a horticultural radio show on Future Radio plus presenting The Plant Based Podcast, appearing & presenting on TV in the UK & USA, travelling to provide talks about gardening, growing your own food and the benefits of plants & nature for wellbeing. My first book 'The Joy of Gardening; the everyday zen of mowing the lawn' was released in May 2021. My second book 'How to Grow a Garden' is due for release in July 2022. I also have an online Gardening for Wellbeing Guide which can be found HERE.

I have studied horticulture through the RHS, social and therapeutic horticulture, cognitive behaviour therapy and wellness coaching so I can provide holistic wellbeing guidance with plants & nature at the core.

I have provided talks for RHS Chatsworth, Chelsea Flower Show, RHS Wisley, The Handmade Festival, VegFest, Grow Careers Scotland, Blenheim Palace & many more. During 2022, you can find me at RHS Malvern, Tatton and Hampton Court.  

 

Having appeared on NBC (WCNC Charlotte, USA), BBC Countryfile Diaries, BBC NewsMustard TV, in The Times & Telegraph newspapers plus filmed with the Royal Horticultural Society - I am always happy to spread the word about our intrinsic connection to the natural world for positive wellbeing & anything gardening related from how to garden to plant based eating. I've produced & presented shows from short to long form.

I am proud Ambassador for Trees for the Future, Patron of Filby Gardening Club and founder of People Plants Wellbeing.

I am also vegan, so I even eat a plant based diet!
