I'm Jane Perrone - freelance writer, and presenter and producer of indoor gardening podcast On The Ledge (if you’re a new listener to On The Ledge, start here). I like growing houseplants and weird veg walking in the countryside with my hound Wolfie.

I have a background in news journalism, spending a total of more than 20 years working in local newspapers, then the Guardian as a reporter and news desk editor. In 2008 I become gardening editor at the Guardian where I worked until 2017. 

I regularly give talks to gardening groups and societies, appear on gardening podcasts (my own and others) and give interviews on the radio about everything from slugs to succulents.
