About the Author

James Wong won a scholarship to the University of Bath and went on to train at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew and the University of Kent, where he graduated with a distinction in Ethnobotany. At the age of 27, Wong became the presenter of his own award-winning BBC Two television series Grow Your Own Drugs. The series demonstrated a number of natural remedies sourced from plants and became the highest-rated gardening series on UK television. A regular face on gardening TV programmes and a four-time RHS medal winner for gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, James is the people's expert on all things horticultural. He is also a guest lecturer at the University of Kent where he designed a ground-breaking Ethnobotanical Garden.
