Let's Talk Gardening

Looking for a practical, energetic and reliable speaker?

Tamsin Westhorpe is an experienced horticultural journalist, gardener, RHS Chelsea Flower Show Judge and lecturer who will light up a room and enthuse your group.

‘My aim is to demystify gardening and help people gain in confidence whilst having jolly good fun’


Tamsin is an experienced zoom speaker and has presented many talks to clubs over the lockdown.


Tamsin is the author of two books: Diary of a Modern Country Gardener (available in paperback and illustrated hardback) and Grasping the Nettle: Tales from a Modern Country Gardener.

Her first book, Diary of a Modern Country Gardener which was endorsed by Chris Beardshaw, reached #1 on Amazon for Horticulture a few weeks after being released and was selected as book of the week by The Daily Mail. A humorous read packed with gardening tips.

Her second book, Grasping the Nettle, is a delightfully funny memoir about one woman’s life in horticulture. A guide to making a living with muddy fingernails, steel toe-capped boots and a can-do gardening attitude.
