Welcome to The Patient Gardener. The site is intended to be the go-to knowledge base for everything you could want to know about gardening.

The website is run by myself, Daniel Berry. Having worked as a professional gardener for years as well as keeping a private allotment I decided to create this website to help spread my knowledge. I love gardening and hope to show you just how rewarding it can be!

Me On My Allotment With My Trophy!
Me On My Allotment With My Trophy!

Here I am on my allotment with the trophy I won for the most improved allotment for the plot I just took over, next year I’m going for best overall!


As part of trying to advance myself as a gardener and so I can pass that knowledge onto you, my readers, I regularly take courses and try to improve my gardening knowledge.

Here are some of my certifications:

No Dig Gardening by Charles Dowding – Completed 2022

Growing Food in Small Spaces Online Course by The Permaculture Association – Completed 2022

Organic Gardening and Maintenance Online Study Course – Completed 2022

How I Make Money

I like to be transparent about how I earn an income on this website.

We earn affiliate income from recommended products. What this means is that if you click one of our recommended products and then purchase it we receive a small commission at no cost to yourself.


We run ads on this website through our partner Mediavine. Mediavine provides personalization and analytic services on this website, as such Mediavine’s privacy policy is in effect.

If you have a great product that you think our customers would love then feel free to discuss this with us by emailing daniel@patientgardener.co.uk

However, we will not advertise any junk. We will only ever recommend good products we would use ourselves.
