Home Gardening Expert

Pamela Hubbard has been a speaker, educator, and writer for nearly twenty years, offering tips and advice for the home gardener on all garden and plant-related issues. She is a sought-after speaker for nationwide garden clubs, flower shows, and horticultural groups. Her talks are fun, informative, and illustrated with beautiful photographs.

Pam writes an award-winning blog, and her monthly newspaper article, Gardening in the Poconos, earned a GardenComm 2019 silver medal. She is frequently asked to train new master gardeners for Penn State Extension.

Pam was born in England and acquired the love of gardening at her grandmother's knee. Her gardens have received three blue ribbons from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society; they were featured in the Summer 2020 edition of Country Gardens Magazine. 

Most recently, she can be found writing her book about creating a traditional cottage garden while dealing with the challenges of these nontraditional times. Her book will be published by Timber Press and include illustrations by internationally known photographer Rob Cardillo. 

As always, she can be found endlessly pursuing her dream of recreating her grandmother's cottage garden at Astolat Farm in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband. They have two adorable goats named Doodles and Petunia.
