I’m Andrew, gardener, blogger, and owner of a too-loud laugh. You can find me on social media using the buttons at the bottom or this page, or you can email me here.

Other than blogging, I’ve written for the The Garden, the members’ magazine for the Royal Horticultural Society, as well as the rather fabulous into-gardens, which you can read on the web or download to your iPad.

If you’d like to receive blog posts in your inbox as soon as they are published, enter your email in the box below to be added to the Gardens, weeds & words mailing list.


I was delighted to hear that this blog had been shortlisted as a finalist for Blog of the Year at the 2016 Garden Media Guild Awards – which makes a hat-trick (one year in its present incarnation, the previous two under its former name, growgardencare.com).
