I’m Julianne Robertson, an experienced PR/Comms professional and freelance journalist specialising in garden and lifestyle topics.

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

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

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 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.

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…
