Tommy Tønsberg's (1980–) interest in gardening was already evident at an early age: as a schoolboy he often spent his entire allowance at the nursery. Today he tends a small but lush garden on the outskirts of Oslo, and is the editor of Norsk Hagetidend, the magazine for members of the Gardeners’ Association. He is also a popular guest speaker.
