Beyond the garden outdoors, Tovah’s areas of specialty also include decades of experience with tropicals (especially begonias) in windowsills, greenhouses, and otherwise. In addition to editing more than a dozen titles, Tovah's passion for interior gardening led to her most recent books, The Unexpected Houseplant and The New Terrarium

In other media, Tovah has ventured into web content writing; you can follow her blog at www.plantswise.com. Watch Tovah in action on television – she has appeared most recently on the CBS Sunday Early Show, the Martha Stewart Show, and the PBS television gardening series “Cultivating Life,” where she served as editorial producer.
Tovah was awarded an Honorary Membership in The Garden Club of America and the Litchfield Garden Club in May 2010; additionally, she became the recipient of the GCA’s medal for outstanding literary achievement.
