Biographies

Lucy Hall

Lucy Hall is the Editor of BBC Gardeners' World Magazine, taking over from founding editor Adam Pasco in 2012, after 10 years as Deputy Editor. Her earliest memory is the smell and taste of fresh tomatoes in her grandfather’s greenhouse and, from then on, she was hooked on growing her own. Growing up north of the border, Lucy was raised on a diet of Beechgrove Garden, as well as Geoff Hamilton’s Gardeners’ World, while these days she gardens in the west country, in a awkwardly narrow garden. At Gardeners’ World Live, she’ll be sharing tips and tricks for growing success in the smallest spaces.

David Hurrion

David Hurrion has spent more than 20 years writing for and editing the nation’s crop of garden magazines, and is now Associate Editor for BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine. He has also appeared both as a regular contributor and an horticultural commentator on a wide range of national and local radio programmes, as well as on television.

David's knowledge is based on more than 40 years of growing plants, working in gardens and nurseries, and gardening his own plots in many different parts of the UK. He studied horticulture at Writtle College in Essex and went on to gain his certificate in education which took him to teach at some of the country's foremost horticultural colleges. He has also travelled to every continent with the exception of antarctica to discover plants and gardens, both independently and, on more than 40 trips accompanying groups of gardeners.

Kevin Smith

Kevin is the Deputy Editor of BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine, having worked with the team for the last 13 years. He’s responsible for running the magazine on a day-to-day basis, along with writing, commissioning and editing content. Kevin’s also a container specialist and has created more than 150 pots for the magazine, all planted, nurtured and photographed in his Essex garden.
