Thanks for stopping by here at, I've recently updated the site to include my recent activities.

Here you'll find details of my latest book, Powerhouse Plants: 510 Top Performers For Multi-Season Beauty following on from last year's Planting the Dry Shade Garden - both with photography by judywhite. Both have been well-received, I'm delighted to say.

I'm also now appearing every month in Britain's Gardener's World magazine (available in Barnes & Noble stores in North America), with Plants For All Seasons, a series based on my book Powerhouse Plants.

I also now have three ebooks avavailable for American gardeners, in all the usual formats, including the first two in my new Plants For Problem Places series. Two of my ebooks are also available fro British gardeners.

In all, I've now published twenty eight books, and won six writing awards - three on each side of the Atlantic. I have two blogs (check them out on the right), I judged for many years at the Chelsea Flower Show and am member of a number of Royal Horticultural Society committees. These days I garden in both Northamptonshire in England, and in Pennsylvania.

Here at you can discover my background, you read some of my work online, you can read reviews of my books on the individual books pages and order copies from or Some titles even have their own websites (see below).

My Transatlantic Gardener blog, where I discuss (and sometimes sound off about about) garden plants, native plants, invasives, plant books, nurseries, garden wildlife and occasionally other Transatlantic matters goes from strength to strength. Join me there and have your say. My Royal Horticultural Society New Plants blog keeps British readers up to date with the best of latest plant introductions. And there's also my Simply Gardening blog. You can also follow me on Twitter, the latest updates are on the right.

And don't forget my perennials encyclopedia, the largest book on perennials ever written. The Encyclopedia of Perennials describes almost 7,000 plants, it was published in a British edition with the Royal Horticultural Society - and won the Laurent-Perrier Award for the gardening reference book of the year - and is also publihed in an American edition with the American Horticultural Society.

Thank you for visiting - don't forget to take a look my blogs... You can check the headlines over on the right.
