I'm Jane Perrone - freelance writer and presenter and producer of indoor gardening podcast On The Ledge. I like growing weird veg and houseplants and walking in the countryside with my hound Wolfie.I used to be gardening editor for the Guardian, and I still freelance for them. You can find all my work for the Guardian here. I also write for other publications, including Grow Your Own magazine, The English Garden, Rakes Progress and NFU Countryside magazine. One of the perks of my job is special access to the Chelsea flower show.
