I started a new full time writing role at Grow Your Own Magazine in January 2021. I’m delighted to have found a new writing position in such a thriving industry, especially given the current strain on the jobs market.
Interest in gardening skyrocketed across the UK during 2020 and into 2021 – largely thanks to Covid lockdowns. Homebase recorded a remarkable 308% increase in searches for garden furniture on its website, showing that Brits are more eager than ever to get to work in their gardens. It’s a fantastic time to get involved with the horticulture industry and it’s satisfying to be contributing to a magazine that helps people to get closer to nature.
Most of my contributions go towards the monthly magazine, (available in most newsagents and supermarkets, see my Tweet below,) but you can also see my work on Grow Your Own’s social media channels, which I have been managing, and on the blog at growfruitandveg.co.uk/blog.
