Meet The Team


Tools & Equipment

My horticultural interest grew when graduating from Hertfordshire University in 1997. Since then I’ve enjoyed growing, landscaping, and designing. I bring over 20 years of experience in power tools and gardening equipment to the team. Contact.


Alison Hilton – Editor

Plant Care

I’m our plant fanatic, with over 100 varieties of houseplants and countless species of plants and shrubs in the garden. Propagation jars, seed trays, and watering cans everywhere! I’m also a big advocate of garden-to-kitchen cooking, getting growing…! Contact.

Jen Olenick

Plant Care

My love of gardening began at two years old when my mom first let me water our pansies. Since then, my fascination with horticulture has grown with a focus on sustainable practices for houseplant care, homegrown crops, and landscape design. Contact.



Pest Control

I’m a Minature Schnauzer who loves to get involved in just about everything in the garden. But my main job is being our pest control expert, with a lifetime of experience taking care of rodents and critters. I also help out with a bit of digging from time to time.
