Emma Hardy is a keen gardener, with an RHS level 2 certificate in Horticulture. She has gardened on an allotment for several years, and is currently creating an urban garden with fruit, vegetables and as many plants as it is possible to squeeze into a small space. She loves planning and creating gardens, but most of all she enjoys getting her hands dirty, and just pottering. Emma's previous books include The Winter Garden, Teeny Tiny Gardening, The Urban Wildlife Gardener and Green Crafts for Children, all published by CICO Books. Married with two daughters, Emma lives in south London.
