Gardening

I have written about gardens and gardening for publications such as the Telegraph, Homes & Gardens, Times Weekend (All hail the god of Beetroot!) The English Garden and British Heritage .

 

I enjoy writing about the nitty gritty of growing particular plants, especially obscure and lost vegetables but equally like writing on garden features, like this one on fountains for My Wiltshire.

 

 

 

 

I particularly loved writing a feature for the Times on the incredible floating allotments (les Hortillonages)  at Amiens  in France and the delightful (but with arcane opening hours) garden at St Johns Jerusalem tucked away just inside the M25 for British Heritage.

 

I am a sucker for 'lost' gardens - such as the mysterious, romantic Warley Place in Essex, once one of the finest gardens in Edwardian England, now a haven for strange ruins, wildlife and beautiful native plants.

 

I am a full member of the Garden Media Guild.
