South Africa’s very own Garden Guru

Known by most South Africans as the television presenter of the Home Channel’s popular show, The Gardener, Tanya Visser still considers herself a regular gardener by profession who’s taken on lots of additional ‘day jobs’ in order to do what she loves best.

If Tanya had it her way, she’d be a full-time gardener but unfortunately it doesn’t pay all that well (especially when it’s in your own garden), so she is also the editor of The Gardener and Die Tuinier magazines, author of various gardening books and also plays host to various Television and live shows throughout the year.
