Graham Clarke is an award-winning writer, who was born into gardening – literally: his father was in charge of Regent’s Park in London, and the family lived in the world-famous Queen Mary Rose Garden. Graham studied with the Royal Horticultural Society at Wisley, and after graduating went to work in the garden at Buckingham Palace. He moved on to commercial-scale bedding plant production at the Central Parks Nursery in London’s Hyde Park, before entering a career in horticultural journalism. In the past 45 years, Graham has written 20 books, and thousands of articles for many of the UK's best-known gardening magazines, newspapers and periodicals. He was editor of Amateur Gardening (the UK’s oldest weekly magazine for amateurs) for 11 years. He is now a freelance writer and broadcaster, living on England's south coast, with his wife, two grown-up daughters and the dog!
