Jamie Chalmers is a passionate and experienced horticulturist who shares gardening knowhow on his website, TrimHedge. When he joined the Planter’s Digest staff as the resident fact-checker, he brought a wealth of knowledge to our team, from advice on the best secateurs to the safest hedge flora for dog owners. Today, he pores over each article to ensure that it meets editorial standards with accurate, reliable information for other plant parents. When he’s not working on our site or TrimHedge – or doing a new topiary in his garden! – Jamie also writes for his other site, Mr X Stitch, through which he keeps up a presence in the online stitch community.
