Barbara Segall grows fruit, vegetables and herbs, as well as ornamental garden plants, in her town garden in the countryside. Her daily walks are the starting point for her hedgerow foraging for elder, nettles, sloes and bullaces, which she turns into kitchen produce. She also forages much from her own garden. She writes articles, books (most recent is Secret Gardens of East Anglia, Frances Lincoln, 2017) and blogs about gardens, grow your own and herbs (www.thegardenpost.com). She edits The Horticulturist and is a member of the Garden Media Guild and the Guild of Food Writers.
