I’ve been working in journalism and communications for 20+ years and I’m an RHS Level 2 qualified gardener.

I’m an experienced freelance journalist, with a special interest in gardening, nature and lifestyle topics.
I’ve written features for a number of publications, including Platinum, Country Smallholding, Garden Answers and local newspaper The Courier.
The Scottish Garden Podcast is a podcast for plant lovers who want to know more about the gardens and growers of Scotland.
I venture into Scottish gardens, nurseries and horticultural events, meeting interesting people and plants along the way.
in April 2021, my show explores what’s special about Scotland’s gardens and gardeners.
The Scottish Garden Podcast was a finalist in the Garden Media Guild Awards 2019 (Alan Titchmarsh New Talent Award and selected as The Times’ Podcast of the Week in April 2021.
A keen amateur photographer, I enjoy taking photos of my own plants and flowers, as well as capturing gardens I’m visiting.
