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 new book about the benefits of gardening is being published in spring 2021.

I have studied RHS level 2 principles of horticulture, social and therapeutic horticulture, cognitive behaviour therapy and wellness coaching so I can provide holistic wellbeing guidance with plants and nature at the core.


Having appeared on NBC (WCNC Charlotte, USA), BBC Countryfile Diaries, BBC NewsMustard TV, in The Times Newspaper and filmed with the Royal Horticultural Society, I am always happy to spread the word about our intrinsic connection to the natural world. I've produced & presented shows from short to long form.

I am proud Ambassador for Trees for the Future, Patron of Filby Gardening Club, founder of No Fear Gardening & run projects for Grapes Hill Community Garden.

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