Geoff Stebbings

Geoff Stebbings has been one of Garden Show Ireland’s ‘garden gurus’ since 2007 returning each year with advice and ideas to share with visitors to the Show. His depth of knowledge and his easy way of communicating are inspirational – to those who are just starting as well as experienced gardeners.

Geoff trained at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and was Head Gardener there before he started writing about gardening. He worked for the Royal Horticultural Society and many garden publications before becoming Editor of Garden Answers.

He moved to Ireland in 2013 to work in a private garden and loved it so much that he now lives here, moving into his current home in 2019 where he is busy making a new garden from a field around the house.

He writes weekly for Garden News as well as regularly for Garden Answers, Landscape and fortnightly for the Irish Sunday Times. He has written many books including the Dummies Guide to growing Fruit and Vegetables and his latest book is Containers, in the DK Grow series.
