Karen Platt sells garden publishing business

After 20 years, Karen Platt is selling her gardening publishing business.

She has eight titles in print. The Seed Search was published five times, her book Black Magic and Purple Passion three times, and two other books went into two editions

Platt gained four design awards from the Chelsea Flower Show, the Seattle and San Francisco Flower Shows as well as appearing in international gardening magazines, newspapers and on radio.

She is now retiring from the business and wants to sell the copyright, stock and production files including high-res images.

As well as the printed books, there is also a range of ebooks, which are ready for print publication and the copyright for these is also for sale. Her latest ebook launched this year is on Purple Flowers.
