Janet CubeyJanet Cubey joined us as a botanist in 1999 with a background in both horticulture and botany. Janet's current role, as Horticultural Data and Floral Judging Manager, involves developing the botanical and horticultural content of the Society's databases, delivering the judging of the floral exhibits at RHS Shows and taking on special projects - such as editing the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants.

As Editor-in-Chief of the RHS Plant Finder, the first two months of each year are particularly busy, as the final stages of the book production and proofreading take place. 'It's great to get to the RHS Flower Shows,' says Janet. 'It's where I keep in touch with the nurseries and see their new plants, which then feeds back into other areas of my work, such as developing the RHS Plant Selector.'
