“Julie Martens worked directly for me on a number of national publishing platforms including Better Homes and Gardens, Home Garden magazine, and the e-commerce website Garden.com. In all cases, she proved to be an extraordinary editor, writer, and project editor. She knows gardening and horticulture thoroughly and her writing is always inspirational, informative, and fun to read. And best of all, she always meets deadlines and communicates well with clients. I highly recommend Julie for any project.”
Doug Jimerson, Editor-in-Chief, Studio G.
“Julie has been my go-to garden writer for the past 8 years, first when I was editor of Lowe’s Creative Ideas for Home and Garden and Outdoor Living magazines and then when I worked in marketing for Bonnie Plants. Not only is Julie the person I call when I need a well-researched, clearly written, on-deadline article, she’s also the first person I ask when I have questions about my own garden. Julie’s garden knowledge is both deep and broad. She knows vegetables, herbs, trees, shrubs, flowers, and wildflowers, and she’s willing and able to share her experience with canning, preserving, cooking, and homesteading, too. I hope I get the opportunity to work with and learn from Julie for many years to come!”

“I’ve worked with Julie Martens for over a decade. She is top-shelf and extremely reliable. I’ve admired that she would never accept an assignment unless she felt she had the time to give it her proper attention. Julie’s writing is a joy to edit. Other than removing an adjective here and there, I had to do hardly any polishing. And, of course, the facts were always solid, which isn’t surprising since Julie is a knowledgeable garden writer and a stickler for detail. I highly recommend her.”
