A Bit About Me

Not only is gardening a passion for me, but I studied horticulture & environmental design in college & have worked in a related field my whole life.  I’ve playing with flowers and plants for a very long time.  I’ve been an interior plantscaper, herb propagator, floral assistant, nursery salesperson as well as having my own business for over 20 years as a garden designer & professional gardener.

I was raised on a farm & began gardening when I was knee high to a grasshopper.  I’ve learned so much through hands on experience & getting my hands in the dirt. For me gardening comes naturally but for you it may not.  Let me share with you what I’ve learned!
