Work with an Expert Horticulture Writer

When you’re hiring a gardening writer, it’s important to hire someone who knows the horticultural industry and the entire world of gardening. General copywriters and freelance writers have a steep learning curve and often don’t understand all the nuances of writing great gardening copy for magazines, websites, blogs, and companies.

I’m a full-time, professional writer working from my fully equipped home office in Virginia.  As a former marketing manager for a major garden center, I know EXACTLY how to write advertising and marketing materials that sell gardening products.

You can learn more about my writing business on my company website, Marketing Writer.

About Writer Jeanne Grunert

I’ve been a professional writer for over 30 years and have published two novels, two short novels, and a collection of short stories as well as a gardening book: Plan and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden.

I am a certified Virginia Master Gardener, the former Ask the Expert columnist for Virginia Gardener magazine, and a former marketing manager for Martin Viette Nurseries, an upscale home and garden center on Long Island, New York.

In 2018, my family discovered the work of Dr. Joel Fuhrman. His book Eat to Live changed our lives. We embraced a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle, and enjoy a mostly (but not totally) vegetarian diet.


I welcome media inquiries and am a polished, confident public speaker. I routinely give lectures on many aspects of indoor and outdoor gardening. Lectures I can deliver to local garden clubs include:

– Start a Butterfly Garden

– African Violets for a Blooming Success

-Keeping Holiday Plants Alive After the Holidays

-Adaptive Gardening (Gardening for the Handicapped)

-Raised Bed Gardens

-Start an Herbal Tea Garden

-Grow an Italian Herb Container Garden

I welcome other opportunities to teach and speak. Please contact me to discuss your gardening, herbalism, or horticulture communications needs.


Inquiries about product reviews are welcome. Home Garden Joy reviews gardening products, tools, seeds, and plants. I guarantee a fair and honest review but not a positive one. I only ask for a sample of the product to review; I am NOT compensated to review any products. If you are interested in having me test and review one of your gardening products, please contact me.



Note: As of April 2020, I do not offer guest posting opportunities.
