Janet CubeyJanet is Editor-in-Chief of RHS Plant Finder, overseeing the editing of more than 78,000 plant names and linking authoritative plant nomenclature with where to find the plants themselves.

She began her RHS career as a Botanist in 1999 and was still writing her horticultural taxonomy PhD.

As Editor-in-Chief of the RHS Plant Finder I oversee the editing of all 78,000 plant names, as well as ensuring the book links authoritative plant nomenclature with the nurseries from which gardeners can purchase the plant. The first two months of each year are particularly busy, as the final stages of the book production and proofreading take place.


With your support, we can undertake valuable research into gardening pests and diseases.
