I specialise in writing books, features, and blogs that present practical gardening skills, design ideas and information about plants in an easy, accessible style.
An editor and writer with 25 years’ experience, my portfolio includes a wide range of gardening books and magazines. Working primarily with Dorling Kindersley and the Royal Horticultural Society, I have development titles ranging from the Encylopedia of Garden Design, to a set of practical titles for beginners called RHS Simple Steps to Success. I also edit Beautiful Gardens magazine, a contract title for the Tillington group of garden centres. My magazine feature work includes monthly contributions to Homes and Gardens Magazine, news for the Garden Design Journal, and a blog for Achica – the homes and gardens shopping website.
As well as undertaking specific commissions, I offer complete word and picture feature packages on a range of gardening projects and themes. Together with photographer Brian North [add link to his website please], I also produce stock photo features on real people’s gardens.
I style and manage garden photographic shoots, sourcing locations and props to create beautiful displays.
