I'm Jane Perrone - gardening editor at the Guardian, co-presenter of the Sow, Grow, Repeat podcast and author of The Allotment Keeper's Handbook. I'm addicted to houseplants, and a grower of weird veg.

You can find all my work for the Guardian here. I also write for other publications, including Grow Your Own magazine, The English Garden and NFU Countryside magazine.

I live in Bedfordshire with my husband, two children and Wolfie the hairy lurcher. 

One of the perks of my job is special access to the Chelsea flower show. In this picture I'm about to launch myself down the bendy slide on Diarmuid Gavin's pyramid garden at RHS Chelsea 2012.

If you'd like to get in touch, please contact me. My agent is Sarah Williams at Sophie Hicks Agency.
