Salary varies annually

I produce and present a radio show, podcast, appear on TV in the UK and USA plus write for numerous publications about gardening and the wellbeing benefits of plants. I’ve loved plants ever since I was a child, with many green fingers in the family.

Make it happen, share your passion and enjoy every moment.

After completing my RHS qualifications I worked as a gardener and I wanted to share my love of plants so started using social media. From there I was asked to do some presenting on local TV about gardening. This paved the way for writing in magazines, hosting a radio show and making contacts around the world to provide talks about my passion – plants and nature for wellbeing. Much of this has been due to my social media profile and activity. It’s like a shop window!
