Laetitia Maklouf Books & Biography


Laetitia Maklouf is a writer and freelance journalist who specialises in all things garden-related. She started gardening after planting a packet of sweet peas on her windowsill and has been hooked ever since. <i>The Virgin Gardener</i> (Bloomsbury 2009) was all about gardening in minimal space, and was quickly followed by a second <i>Sweet Peas for Summer</i> (Bloomsbury 2012) which charted the making of her first ‘real’ garden. She blogs at on all things gardening, with a keen focus on the practical, writes regularly for The Sunday Times, and her weekly newsletter, charting her daily exploits in the garden, goes out to a much treasured list of subscribers. She is married with three small children who take up most of her time, which is why she has written this book.
