About Gardenknow

Gardenknow is a website dedicated to the upkeep and maintenance of gardens. Our content is generally split into three main categories; informational guides, tutorials, and product round-ups. Through these main content types we aim to better inform gardeners at all levels, from those just starting out to even highly experienced ones.

Gardenknow Editing TeamĀ 

Our content is written by real gardeners with a genuine passion for gardening. We believe that informational guidance should be backed by well thought out and researched content mixed with real-world experience. With the time-consuming nature of gardening, we more than anyone understand the need for a flexible team to produce content. The gardenknow team consists of freelance writers, designers as well as a full-time content manager (Richard).

Here’s your chance to meet some of the team:

Richard Davies – Chief Editor

team member richardRichard, despite spending much of his day behind a computer screen loves to get outdoors. He enjoys hiking, playing golf and most importantly; gardening. As one of the younger members of the editing team Richard still has over 15 years of gardening experience! He was introduced to gardening by his father who runs a landscaping business, and immediately loved it. As a computing graduate, working on the website is his way of combining his love of technology with his passion for gardening.

As a member of the National Vegetable Society (Manchester branch) Frank has enjoyed success as part of teams that won gold medals at the Tatton and Poynton shows.

Product Round-Ups and Reviews

We pride ourself on maintaining a highly ethical standpoint when it comes to product recommendations. We’d never recommend a product that we don’t fully believe in, and carry out vigorous research on the product before making our recommendations. Our product reviews and round-up style posts are a way to provide people with a “go to” list of high quality products. We maintain editorial independence and don’t have any obligation to recommend products from specific manufacturers. We consider recommending poor quality products to be counter-intuitive and a waste of everyone’s time.

We’re always open to ideas for content, and love to interact with our readers. If you have any idea for content and want to get in touch you can do so below. We’re always happy to consider all styles of suggestion but are particularly open to:
