Working as a Garden Writer

If you love gardening, it is natural to want to share this with others. Some gardeners do so by sharing flowers, plants and produce, others through photography, and some take up a pen to share their passion through the written word.

Garden writing has a long and distinguished tradition, and remains in high demand. Gardening books are among the most popular of all non-fiction books and many are published each year. But books are not the only option for today’s garden writers, many of whom write for magazines, newspapers, websites or blogs.

The most successful garden writers bring together a unique combination of skills, including an ability to write well and good horticultural knowledge, with a real passion for their subject.
