I am a horticulturist living in the Pacific Northwest, where people garden, a lot! My two best friends are my shovel and my camera. I’m not sure if I like gardening more or writing about it, but if I had to pick between the two, I would probably break up with both.
Yes, I have a specialty . . . ornamental landscapes utilizing edibles and container gardening. I love to share my knowledge with others. I believe everyone can have a beautiful garden design and a wonderful outdoor living space. Your outdoor lifestyle can improve! I use the most up to date horticultural practices that offer a positive impact on the environment.
