I’m Julianne Robertson, a freelance journalist specialising in garden and lifestyle topics.

I write about gardening matters for a variety of print publications and I’m the host of The Scottish Garden Podcast, the only podcast exploring the gardens and growers of Scotland.

I’m a probationary member of the Garden Media Guild and self-studying the RHS Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Horticulture.

I’m also an experienced PR and Communications professional, a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and an Accredited PR Practitioner.

I wear two quite different hats in my professional life:

Hat 1 – BUSES: I work for a large public transport company and I’m skilled in PR and media relations, digital and social content and stakeholder management.

Hat 2 – PLANTS: I’m passionate about plants, growing and gardening and love to express this through various media – print, broadcast and social.

However, you’d be surprised how these two worlds do intersect when it comes to community, wellbeing, and respect for the environment – I believe if more people spent time in their garden or on a bus, the world would be a better place…
