The Planthunter

The Planthunter - Hayley West

MEET GEORGINA REID, writer, landscape designer, and founder and editor of The Planthunter. It’s an online magazine that wanders across the cultural landscape, secateurs in hand, exploring the endlessly interesting connections between people and plants. It’s beautiful, irreverent and celebratory, and there’s nothing else like it.
 
Growing up on a farm in the central west of NSW, Georgina spent her childhood traipsing around a large country garden behind her horticulturalist mother; helping plant, dig, sow, and harvest. She was born with green blood, though it took her some time to take her plant love seriously. Following a degree in journalism she soon decided to change tack and return to plants. Sparks flew, and she knew she was on the right path.
 
Before launching The Planthunter in 2013, Georgina worked as a landscape designer for a decade. Ever since, however, she’s been running around like a mad woman! As well as editing The Planthunter she’s also a regular contributor to The Design Files and Belle, runs workshops, occasionally designs gardens, and speaks at various events when asked nicely. When she’s not writing, thinking, and talking about plants she’s eating them – her other passion.
