Tiffany Daneff is an award winning magazine and website editor, journalist and writer. She is Gardens Editor at Country Life magazine.
Recently she acted as Contributing Editor on RHS Design Outdoors by Matt Keightley (Mitchel Beazley, 2019), and she edited the English version of Nature. Aesthetics. Design. by the German landscape designer Peter Berg (DVA, 2017).
Previously she worked for 12 years as Contributing Editor, Gardens & Homes for Saga Magazine where she also wrote articles and interviews with subjects ranging from Hugh and Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall to the illustrator Quentin Blake.
While at Saga Tiffany blogged at The Sheep Garden recounting her battles with nature as she strives against the odds (of which there are plenty from moles to frost pockets via husbands – okay, there’s just the one of those) to reclaim a derelict Northamptonshire garden.
As Editor of GardenLife magazine 2005 -2006 and, prior to that, Launch Editor of Telegraph Gardening, she brought gardening to a new and wider audience who did not necessarily have horticultural training but loved plants and wanted to know how to grow them.
With the launch of intoGardens in 2012 in she teamed with garden designer James Alexander-Sinclair this time to bring gardening to the internet generation. The innovative and award winning iPad magazine was followed by the website, also an award winner, and both are accompanied by the intoGardens Youtube channel.
Her journalistic career began as a freelancer contributing arts, lifestyle and general features and celebrity interviews to a variety of publications such as The Daily and Sunday Telegraph, The Evening Standard, The Daily Mail, You magazine and many others. This lead to columns in the Sunday Telegraph Review and Telegraph Weekend where she eventually succumbed to the temptation of a proper job and became a features editor.
In between that those early freelance commissions she also published London Walks, (Michael Joseph), ghost wrote Scandal! for Christine Keeler (Xanadu) and helped Anton Mosimann write The Essential Mosimann (Ebury).
After a few aborted attempts at escaping London she finally escaped to Northamptonshire where she lives surrounded by sheep.
