Ornamentals & Edibles

 published appearances




THE DAILY JOURNAL no longer publishes or maintains the Ornamentals & Edibles magazine, Sunday newspaper supplement or web - so it's not certain that the full range of my published content and images may be re-linked. I'll keep readers posted as to any progress and I kindly thank The Daily Journal for their permission to re-print!

In the mean time, here are links to 4 feature articles out of the 10 which I wrote between 2007 and 2009, I'll continue to re-post if additional content becomes available. First published in
