Online Workshop: Herbs with Barbara Segall

Monday 7 September 2020, 11am


Time: 11am
Price: Free to Guild members

Event Information

Barbara Segall will cover her favourite herbs and varieties for culinary use, sharing her extensive knowledge of growing, cutting, seed harvesting and using in cooking. 

Barbara Segall edits magazines and writes about gardens, plants and gardeners. Her own garden and those open to the public, here and abroad – and gardeners – professionals and passionate amateurs, alike, all feature in her writing. Growing her own fruit, vegetables and herbs in a small, productive and ornamental town garden gives her great pleasure, as does using the produce and writing about it.

Herbs are among the plants she would have on her desert island, so it is only natural that they feature regularly in her work, including four books on herbs (including Your Herb Garden: Month-by-Month) and the magazine Herbs, which she edited for ten years (2008–2018) for the Herb Society. She is a member of the Garden Media Guild and for several years served on its committee and edited its quarterly publication.

She is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture and editor of its magazine, The Horticulturist. Barbara’s work appears in a number of popular publications and for several years she blogged about her town garden for Hozelock. Her column, Growbag, was published in The Times weekend section for several years and she has contributed to gardening sections of consumer magazines, as well as to gardening titles and partworks on gardening, cookery and history.

Barbara is an Assistant County Organiser for the National Gardens Scheme in Suffolk, and she enjoys visiting and writing about gardens in the county and the region, as well as those abroad. A few years ago she began developing a new town garden in Sudbury, where she grows ornamental and productive plants in containers and in the ground. She is enthusiastic about low-maintenance gardening, if such a concept can truly exist.
