I've been a freelance writer for the past 20 years. I've written for all the broadsheets, many, many magazines and websites, including The Times, Telegraph, The English Garden, LandScape, Homes & Gardens, Country Life, Britain and British Heritage, for whom I've been a columnist for ten years. I also have a blog, The Event Gardener. I spent eleven years at the BBC. I am also an author, of both fiction and non fiction, often writing for children and young people. I am currently working on my eighth non-fiction book for young people.
My urban allotment is high on Greenwich Hill in South East London, overlooking Canary Wharf. My home garden, in a small Victorian terrace, is secluded, part formal, part loosely planted. I often create new recipes for the produce I grow, and (usually out of necessity!) do a lot of preserving.
