Jane Powers on Her Recent Sunday Times Appointment


In a reply to HortiTrends, Jane Powers talks about her recent appointment as gardening correspondent and more! The Sunday Times asked me to be part of its new "Sunday" section, a weekly 40-page supplement. I will be writing about all kinds of things horticultural: the practical nuts-and-bolts of gardening, garden visits, plant profiles, specialist nurseries to visit, garden events, interviews with top gardeners, books to read, pests to bash or avoid, and so on. The column will also incorporate news, interesting new products and plants, events, and other matters of interest to gardeners.

I was the Irish Times gardening correspondent for nearly 15 years — until October 2011. I have been concentrating on a writing a book for the last few months, and while I would have liked another few months to finish the book, I was delighted when the Sunday Times contacted me and asked me to be the gardening correspondent for the Ireland edition.

Here's what my editor tells me about the section:

"The new Sunday section is a 40-page section featuring life, home, food and Ingear copy with a greater emphasis on Irish content. For the first time the Sunday Times will have an Irish gardening correspondent, restaurant critic, cook, wine expert and will welcome back an Irish motoring correspondent. There will also be Outdoors/activity content as well as exciting new personal life columns.

The section will feature, food features, lifestyle features and home features. It will contain content readers are already familiar with from Home and Ingear but with increased Irish input and brand new sections in Life and Food."
