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 'The Joy of Gardening; the everyday zen of mowing the lawn' is due for release on 27th May 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.

I have provided talks for RHS Chatsworth & Chelsea Flower Show, The Handmade Festival, VegFest, Grow Careers Scotland, Blenheim Palace & many more. 

 

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 & 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, founder of No Fear Gardening & run projects for Grapes Hill Community Garden.

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