Life. With plants.


Wandering across the cultural landscape, secateurs in hand, The Planthunter explores the endlessly curious connections between people and plants. It is beautiful, irreverent and important, and there is no other publication like it.

With a highly engaged audience from across the globe, The Planthunter is widely loved, respected and shared. Its success has arisen not from big marketing budgets, trend chasing or buzz words, but from the values underpinning it. They are:

  • ACT WITH INTEGRITY
  • SPEAK ONLY TRUTH
  • BE CURIOUS
  • CREATE AND CELEBRATE BEAUTY
  • DO GOOD

The Planthunter speaks directly from the heart, to the heart. It weaves a rich story of connection and respect between humans, culture, plants and environment. It draws equally from culture and horticulture, art and science, beauty and botany. It inspires people to fall in love with the world around them, through falling in love with plants.

The Planthunter content is organised around monthly issues, each with a different content theme (check out some of our past issues here). Each week we publish three stories relating to the issue theme, and every Wednesday we send out an email newsletter.

Georgina Reid / EDITOR & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

The Planthunter is the love child of Sydney based writer and landscape designer Georgina Reid. It’s the culmination of the many years Georgina has spent pondering, exploring, and documenting the various ways humans relate to the natural world as a designer, writer and thinker.

In addition to her role as the editor and creative director of The Planthunter, Georgina works with select clients to help them tell their story and make big creative ideas happen. She’s a columnist for The Design Files and Country Style magazine and is often asked to speak at events/workshops about the benefits, beauty and importance of connecting with plants and nature.

Georgina has qualifications in journalism, horticulture and landscape design and a love of big ideas, seductive storytelling and sharp design.
