One-Line Bio

I garden in northwestern Rhode Island. This is a zone 5b-6 garden. One of the most rewarding experiences for this gardener is to share the on-going evolution of the garden and the fruits of her efforts. This blog is a vehicle for the journey. I will also be adding some highlights from my travels to local garden centers. There is always a new trend, new plant, or a display garden or greenhouse to share.

Biography

The garden is incorporated into the landscape which is filled with many outcroppings of ledge!

I have worked for the past twelve years as a Manufacturer's Representative in the Lawn and Garden Industry in the Southern New England area. I have a B.L.A. from the University of R. I. and also a Certificate of Horticulture.
I also co-host a radio show in the Boston area 'The Garden Guys' which can be heard live in it's entirety on Sunday mornings at www.garden-guys.com from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m. Podcasts of shows are available on the website.
I love the industry and its' people and, on most days of the week, I can be found visiting the local garden centers trying to sell lawn and garden related products. What is better than that? Just gardening! It's basic and it's immediate gratification!
