About me

With years of practical and professional gardening experience, I’ve taught most aspects of horticulture both at Easton College and independently, and for five years was a member of the BBC Radio Norfolk weekday gardening team. I’m also the garden features writer for regional magazine ‘Let’s Talk’, which I’ve been doing since 2008. Trained in horticulture, permaculture and formal garden design (which I’ve also taught), I hold a BA (Hons) degree in Typography and Graphic design, and obtained the RHS Level 2 in Horticulture with Distinction.

I’m well-known for my range ofillustrated talks for horticultural groups, the WI, county Gardens Trusts, historical societies and the U3A, and am especially interested in herbs, traditional remedies and organic growing. I’ve also delivered courses for organisations including the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and the National Trust, and was a popular tutor with the W.E.A. for many years.
