Having grown up on a farm in the Kent countryside, I am currently dividing my time between London and the south coast, where my husband and I are trying to turn two dilapidated Victorian railway carriages into an eco-house. Gardening is one of my long-time interests, and I’m lucky enough to have spent my career writing about it, with a weekly column in The Sunday Telegraph since 1996. Other passions include living well while endeavouring to consume less, poetry, photography, lurchers, Italy, thrift shops, markets, Bob Dylan, beachcombing, cooking and my young daughter.
