I write for national gardening magazines, companies and websites. I am particularly interested in communicating the tremendous health benefits to wellbeing in both gardening and nature walks, as well finding plants in their natural habitat whilst out hiking. I garden and write with wildlife and the environment at the forefront of my mind.

This website hosts my gardening diary which is a collection of garden visits, seasonal gardening tips and publication news. 

I have written for Richard Jackson Garden since spring 2018 and have 24 published features on topics ranging from pollinators, medicinal plants and herbs, bulbs, wildflowers and trees for wildlife to garden visits, staycations and reconnecting teenagers with nature.

I have written a monthly column for Garden News magazine 'Over the Fence' since June 2019 as well as extended two and three-page features.

I have recently teamed up with Tanya of Lovely Greens to contribute regular pieces for her incredibly successful organic gardening website, writing about herbs and providing monthly gardening guides for the kitchen garden.

 

Proud to feature on Ellen Mary's brand new online Wellbeing Studio 'People Plants Wellbeing' discussing the benefits of nature walks to mental health.

 

I have written pieces for The RHS and featured in Grow Your Own magazine and BBC Countryfile describing my path into horticulture, RHS courses and wildlife gardening.

 

I have also written many guest blogs, these include Gardening for Disabled Trust, Michael Perry aka PlantGeek and Gardening for Disabled Trusts charity book 'Cuttings.'

Studying the RHS Horticulture Diploma 2015-2016 was life changing for me so if you are interested in progressing your studies read my case study featured on the Bristol Botanic Gardens website.
