I am currently working on features for Gardeners’ World Magazine including gardening with children, growing vegetables in small spaces and wildlife gardening.



I write about natural history, the environment and conservation. I’m a Guardian Country Diarist and have also written for Back from the Brink (a Natural England and Rethink Nature project aiming to save 20 species from extinction) and Landlines: British Nature Writing, 1789-2014

I contribute comment articles, plant profiles and book reviews for the RHS The Garden magazine.

Gardens in their local context

I’ve written for The English Garden about an inspiring cottage garden in Letchworth Garden City and I write regularly for Ashridge Nurseries and the Candide Gardening App, covering nature and gardening topics such as peat-free compost, the Great British Wildflower Hunt and biodiversity in the garden.

I’m currently working on a book exploring the natural and social history of the local landscape – an ecology of walking, observing and belonging.
