Daisy Payne is best known for her residency on This Morning where she shares her gardening knowledge to viewers at home, with the aim of making gardening a little less scary. She hopes to emulate what former Ground Force gardener Charlie Dimmock did by challenging the male-dominated world of TV, and making gardening more accessible and inclusive. Speaking to The Sun, she says:
“I think there’s a perception that if you have long blonde hair and nice nails then you can’t be a gardener – you’re just a pretty girl. It is really important for me to challenge that stereotype”.
As well as making gardening more inclusive, she is passionate about making it more exciting for young children and promoting sustainable gardening. Working on a large garden could feel overwhelming for children so she believes the important thing is to start small, and get children planting or sowing seeds in the hope it would spark an interest that they can take further. She also promotes sustainable gardening, believing that “anything anyone can do to help do their bit in reversing biodiversity loss is better than not doing anything at all”.
She hadn’t always been involved in gardening, it only taking off when she “said goodbye to London’s city life and created a new chapter here in the Cotswolds”. After buying her countryside home, she started up a blog and a YouTube channel which caught the idea of the ITV bosses. Since then, she has climbed the ranks of the gardening world, and provides helpful tips to her social media following of over 21,000.
As well as her spot on one of TV’s most popular shows, Daisy has been featured in publications including The Sun, The Mirror, The Daily Star, The Metro and OK magazine.
Daisy runs her own website and online masterclasses known ‘Garden to Garnish’. It was established so she could share her gardening story and inspire others with easy planting tips. For a small fee, Daisy provides gardening updates as well as hints and tips for running a successful allotment; she also provides tutorials and offers exclusive membership perks; and, provides an online space for members to share their gardening journey and learn from other members.
