Of that GMG award the Judges’ commented that:

Matthew Appleby gave us good old fashioned investigative journalism. He gave us a through insight into the way that Bunnings is going to affect the garden centre trade, his article on planting for bees featured new and surprising research results While the feature on roses was equally strong. With the exception of Tom Loxley, no other journalist gave us three articles of equal strength, and Matthew’s research had the edge. 

Together Peter Donegan and Matt chat trends in horticulture, from the return of the scythe to lawnmower sales, the effects of the plant disease xylella on the horticulture industry and Matts next book on being vegan. We go all the way into where Matt was before he joined Hort Week, their future from print to online and how that has changed, to family life and how that has inspired books.

Go on... say something groovy
