Emergency (maybe less than one week's notice)

I am a Cotswolds-based journalist, specialising in gardening and a member of the Garden Media Guild. In 2018, I was named Garden Journalist of the Year in the Property Press Awards, a title that went to Alan Titchmarsh in 2019.

My work appears in newspapers, magazines and websites, and I write the monthly gardening feature for Cotswold Life magazine.

My talks give you an insight into the beautiful gardens of the Cotswolds and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of press day at Chelsea, the world's most famous flower show.

Most of my talks are to gardening clubs but I have also been booked by WI, lunch clubs and U3A, with many repeat bookings.


  • “Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your presentation.”
  • “Thank you for a superb talk and so well presented.”
  • “I have had a couple of emails to say how good you are so thank you.”
  • “. . . a very enjoyable talk and great photos.”
  • “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.”
  • “I have received only positive feedback . . . 'She really knew her stuff inside out.', 'One of the best speakers we've ever had.', 'I'm not much for gardening but she made me want to get out there....'. Praise indeed!”

I prefer to travel within the Cotswolds but am prepared to consider further afield in the SW so do inquire.
