Garden designer, writer host of ABC TV series Dream Gardens and Travelling Masterclass tour leader.

For every hour I’ve spent gardening, I must have spent at least ten hours thinking about gardens- the plants, the processes and planting combinations. Most of my waking hours have been spent teasing out their anatomy, history, philosophy, and the power of a garden to delight, challenge, and nurture. It’s been a crazily steep learning curve that shows no sign of tapering off!

The Gardenist is about asking questions and connecting with like-minded companions on the journey. It’s about discovering the ‘why’ behind gardens as much as giving hands-on experience. Together we may happen on a few answers – which will, no doubt, lead to bigger questions. Bring them on!
