About me

self portrait in gardenI’m a writer, podcaster, blogger, photographer and horticulture student (RHS Level 2). 

qualified broadcast journalist and PR professional, with experience in radio and print, I write about gardening, wildlife, home and general lifestyle matters.

I garden at home in Dundee, Scotland where I’ve lived for more than 20 years; I was born and brought up in Northern Ireland.

I’m passionate about plants and propagation, recording progress on my garden redesign and recently-launched back garden micro-nursery on my blog mycorneroftheearth.wordpress.com.  I’ve also recently launched the podcast The Scottish Garden Podcast.

Special interests include: herbaceous perennials, edibles, dahlias, cut flowers, garden redesign, henkeeping.
