I have been fortunate enough to have been involved with a few television programmes, especially a hour long BBC 2 ‘Gardeners’ World’ broadcast on the restoration of Audley End Kitchen Garden and ‘The Great British Food Revival’. I have made contributions to various gardening magazines including ‘Grow It’, ‘Grow Your Own, ‘You magazine’ and ‘Gardens Illustrated’ and also written a Teach Yourself book; ‘Grow Your Own Fruit and Vegetables’. As well as a collaboration on the ‘Organic Kitchen Garden’. I have also enjoyed sharing a few hours with Ken Crowther on his highly popular BBC Radio Essex gardening programme and I also contribute to the Organic Gardening programme on World Radio Gardening an internet radio station.

Concerns about food provenance and unnecessary chemicals are undoubtedly key to the rise in interest in organic gardening, but Foodies are also keen to enjoy the flavours of really fresh produce. Digging up your first ever home-grown potatoes is said to be a life-changing experience; but eating them is even more of a thrill. Once you’ve tasted really fresh produce you’ll never go back. Not only do really fresh fruit and vegetables taste better, but they also have greater levels of vitamins, making them one of the best ways to a healthy diet. ISBN-10: 1840913940
