Jason has been a keen gardener for over twenty years, having taken on numerous weed infested patches and turned them into productive vegetable gardens.
One of his first gardening experiences was digging over a 400 square foot garden in its entirety and turning it into a vegetable garden, much to the delight of his neighbors who all got free vegetables! It was through this experience that he discovered his love of gardening and started to learn more about the subject.
His first encounter with a greenhouse resulted in fifty tomato plants growing like triffids, but he soon learnt how to make the most of a greenhouse and now grows a wide variety of plants from grapes to squashes to tomatoes and more.
He is passionate about helping people learn to grow their own fresh produce and enjoy the many benefits that come with it, from the exercise of gardening to the nutrition of freshly picked produce. He often says that when you’ve tasted a freshly picked tomato you’ll never want to buy another one from a store again! Jason loves feeding friends, family and strangers his home-grown produce and enjoys hearing how much better people think it tastes.
Jason is also very active in the personal development community, having written books on self-help, including subjects such as motivation and confidence. He has also recorded over 80 hypnosis programs, being a fully qualified clinical hypnotist which he sells from his website www.MusicForChange.com.
Jason also loves to grow giant and unusual vegetables and is still planning on breaking the 400lb barrier with a giant pumpkin. He hopes that with his new allotment plot he’ll be able to grow even more exciting vegetables to share with his readers. He spends spring fighting with his thirteen cats for windowsill space for seedlings and goes to elaborate lengths to protect his plants from overly curious cats.
At the moment, Jason is studying for his RHS Level 2 qualification in Horticulture. He has written over 18 gardening books and a dozen other books on a wide variety of subjects including self-help, beauty, cooking and health.
