Matt Collins came to writing from a horticultural background. He trained at the Botanic Gardens of Wales before taking up a consultancy position with the Garden Museum in London. He served as head gardener for a private residence, where he honed his whittling skills and published a journal, Ivy Cities, about the work involved in maintaining a working garden.
