Tanya Visser

Tanya Visser is first and foremost a gardener, but full-time gardening really doesn’t pay well (especially when it’s in your own garden), so she is also the editor of The Gardener and Die Tuinier magazines and presenter of The Gardener television series.

Tanya started gardening at a young age, helping her dad in the veggie patch, and to this day she loves growing her own vegetables for the kitchen. She also nurtures an impressive succulent collection and her collection of grasses is expanding (although she acknowledges that doing all her day jobs leaves her with precious little time to spend in her own garden). Tanya built on the experience she acquired during those very early days in the garden by studying horticulture at what was then Natal Technikon. After qualifying as a horticulturist she began her working career in a garden centre, learning the tricks of the trade and expanding her plant and business knowledge.
