About Zia

Editor, writer & garden consultant

I have over 30 years’ experience in the publishing world, having edited both national magazines and best-selling books. I am also a qualified horticulturalist, and author of the book, Indoor Edible Garden, and co-author of Indoor Edible Garden, How to Grow Practically Everything and The Complete Gardener’s Manual, published by Dorling Kindersley and The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).

I also write regularly for newspapers, garden journals, blogs, and the women’s press, including monthly contributions to Homes and Gardens magazine, on all aspects of horticulture and garden design. Click here for more information on my editorial services.

As well as writing and editing, I also run gardening consultations for home owners in my local area. These are designed for beginners who would like to know more about how to improve their gardens and what to plant where. Click here for more information on gardening consultations.
