In its previous incarnation as Transatlantic Gardener, my newly re-launched Graham’s Garden blog won the Garden Blog Of The Year award from the Garden Media Guild in 2014 and was a beaten finalist twice in previous years. I’ve won six more awards for books and magazine writing of all kinds – on both sides of the Atlantic.
In 2010 I won the International Contributor Award from America’s Perennial Plant Association, this award honours an individual who has made significant contributions internationally to the herbaceous perennial industry through writing, breeding, growing, retailing, or designing with perennials.
In all, I've now published twenty eight books. I write every month for Gardener's World magazine, most weeks for Amateur Gardening or Garden News magazine, every month for the trade magazine Horticulture Week and every quarter for the RHS Magazine The Plant Review plus occasionally for The Telegraph, Gardens Illustrated, and a range of other titles. As well as blogging here at Graham’s Garden I continue to write my Plant Talk blog for the top British mail order seed and plants company, Mr Fothergill's and the New Plants blog for the Royal Horticultural Society.
My most recent book, Powerhouse Plants: 510 Top Performers For Multi-Season Beauty followed on from Planting the Dry Shade Garden - both have been well-received, I'm delighted to say.
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 - it won the Laurent-Perrier Award for the gardening reference book of the year - and in an American edition with the American Horticultural Society
I have three ebooks available for American gardeners, in all the usual formats, as well as two for British gardeners. Take a look at details of all these ebooks.
I judged for many years at the Chelsea Flower Show and am member of Royal Horticultural Society Herbaceous Plant committee.
