Liz Ware is a freelance garden writer, historian and photographer. She initiated and runs Silent Space – a not-for-profit project that invites garden visitors to switch off their phones and enjoy the beauty around them without distraction.

She writes on all aspects of gardening, gardens and landscapes but has a particular interest in their health giving properties. Her work has appeared in many publications including  RHS The Garden, National Trust Magazine, and The English Garden.

After graduating from Exeter University, Liz worked in the City and abroad.  When her children started school, she began studying again. She gained a First Class degree in the History of Art and Architecture and an MA in Garden History from Bristol University. Diplomas in Horticulture and ‘Plantsmanship’ from The English Gardening School added to her knowledge of plants.

Liz was a founding member of Berkshire Gardens Trust and recently completed three years as a Trustee of The Association of Gardens Trusts. She is a member of The Garden Media Guild, Professional Garden Photographers’ Association and a board member of the Landscape, Gardens & Health Network.

Plants, gardens and landscapes have taken her to every corner of the globe but she is equally happy on her Oxfordshire allotment.
