Linda Coyner


Linda Coyner is a gardener/journalist who planted her first seed in New York soil. She trained as a landscape designer at the New York Botanical Garden. A few years ago she said good-bye to her garden in Chappaqua, New York, and a full-time job in book and magazine publishing. These days Linda lives in Naples, Florida, where she's a Florida Certified Horticulture Professional and a Master Naturalist in Wetlands. She is delighted to be gardening year round as well as writing about plants and flowers. Linda can be reached by email.

Linda received the 2002 Garden Writers Association Garden Globe award for her articles, Garden Edition: "Soy Bean (a.k.a. Edamane)" and Garden Edition: "Water Saving Products for The Garden," 3 Part Series.

In April 2004 she received the same Garden Globe award for her two-part article in, Part One: Sun sense for gardeners; Skin and Eye Protection and Part Two: Sun sense for gardeners; Protective Clothing
