My guest on today's podcast is the wonderful garden designer, writer and TV presenter, Arit Anderson. Who I'm sure you recognise from BBC Gardener's World and Garden Rescue. The 52-year-old grew up in North London and worked in fashion for 25 years before discovering horticulture in her mid-40s. It was moving into a new house that, er, sowed the seeds of a new gardening career and while continuing as a freelance consultant, she studied for a diploma in garden design at Capel Manor a specialist environmental college. Swiftly going on to win several awards, including one at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2013, and a Gold Medal for her conceptual garden highlighting the impact of climate change and the need for renewable energies, at RHS Hampton Court in 2016. Today, as well as broadcasting, writing and investigating ways to make landscaping more eco-friendly, she runs her own successful garden design practice.In this podcast, Arit Anderson explains her career trajectory from fashion retail and events, to finding happiness in horticulture. We talk about how being in nature can restore our mental health, what makes a good garden and what she's doing to stay positive during the pandemic (clue: it's much more adventurous than sourdough). I'm sure you're going to love this episode. Now that we're recording the podcast using an app, I don't actually meet (or even see) the guests - which can feel a bit awkward at times - but it has to be said that Arit was warm and friendly and an absolute dream to chat to. I'm hoping that when all this is over, we'll be able to meet up IRL and I can pick her brains about my balcony. In the meantime, I've offered to email her a photo...Producer and audio engineer: Linda Ara-TebaldiHost: Alyson WalshGuest: Arit AndersonMusic: David SchweitzerArtwork: Ayumi TakahashiDigital technician: Tom Hole at StirtingaleCoordinator: Helen Johnson
