His first recorded proper words (according to his mother, who wouldn’t exaggerate on such a matter) were ‘meadowsweet’, uttered on a nature walk in the River Trent marshes when he was nearly three. Matthew Seal grew up in a family of gardeners and botanists and, while not following his kinfolk into professional gardening or horticulture, he has never forgotten this early ‘greening’.
He has worked as an editor and writer in books, magazines and newspapers for over thirty-five years, in both the UK and South Africa. He is author of Survive and Thrive in the New South Africa. In addition to his ongoing freelance editing, he has experience in design and as a production manager for a radical publisher.
