"Because everyone yearns to play in the dirt…"

Tovah Martine horticultur author writer photo lecturer     In her constant, undying pursuit of all things garden-related, Tovah gets her hands dirty both outside and indoors. She is a perennial, heirloom, vegetable and cottage gardener of fanatical proportions, and is accredited with NOFA as an Organic Land Care Professional. Beyond the garden outdoors, Tovah’s areas of specialty also include decades of experience with tropicals (especially begonias) in windowsills, greenhouses, and otherwise. Her passion for gardening inside her home led to her most recent books, The Unexpected Houseplant (Timber Press, 2012) and The New Terrarium (Clarkson Potter/Publishers, 2009). These newest publications are added to more than a dozen titles that Tovah has authored including Tasha Tudor’s Garden (Houghton Mifflin, 1994). Check out her lecture schedule for a talk, demonstration or workshop near you.

     You can also catch the gardening contagion and read about Tovah’s successes, foibles, and travels through her articles in Country Gardens, Traditional Home, Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, Cottage Journal, Better Homes & Gardens, at Home magazine, Connecticut Cottages & Gardens, Flower magazine, Horticulture, Coastal Living, Coastal Home, Old House Interiors, Early Homes, Westchester Home & Garden, This Old House Magazine, and The Litchfield County Times as well as many other publications. Recently, she proudly served as the 2012 Writer-in-Residence for Victoria magazine. In other media, Tovah has ventured into web content writing, follow her blog at www.plantswise.com and follow her on Facebook at Plantswise by Tovah Martin. Watch Tovah in action on television – she has appeared most recently on the CBS Sunday Early Show http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7251965n and the Martha Stewart Show as well as many other broadcasts including the PBS television gardening series “Cultivating Life,” where she served as editorial producer.

Among the most moving moments in her life occurred when Tovah was awarded an Honorary Membership in The Garden Club of America and the Litchfield Garden Club in May 2010 and when she became the recipient of the GCA’s medal for outstanding literary achievement. In 2013, she received the Gustav Mehlquist Award—the highest honor bestowed by the Connecticut Horticultural Society.
