I am a semi-retired UK botanical garden curator and former international horticultural consultant, who has worked extensively in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australia. I spend part of the year in Australia and part in Europe, mainly due to family and work commitments. I earn my living from writing and editing Internet copy, articles and books. I have written over fifty books on gardening and have been translated into twenty-four different languages. I am a former UK Garden Writer of the Year and a previous Quill & Trowel Award Winner from the Garden Writer’s Association of America. I am interested in developing gardening communities on the Internet and I manage the popular GardenMessenger Yahoo group, along with its various sub-groups like PondMessenger and SeedMessenger. I also edit International Water Gardener and its associated regional web-sites.

Plantarium 2006 Press Award for Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride’

Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride’

Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride’ was announced as the winner of the Plantarium 2006 Press Award at the recent international horticultural exhibition in The Netherlands. The plant was shown by Gebr. Jonkers Elshout BV of Elshout, The Netherlands. The international jury of horticultural trade journalists said that Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride’ catches the eye because of the beautiful dark colour of both leaf and flower and the fact that it is attractive all year round. This compact plant will look excellent in the garden and on a balcony or terrace. According to the jury another advantage of ‘Postman’s Pride’is that it requires little water and is easy to maintain.
