Why Am I Passionate About Gardening

Learning is a lifelong adventure and for gardeners the rewards are extra sweet beautiful flowers, healthy delicious fruits and vegetables, and a calm and pleasing landscape. There is also the extra health benefit of exercise what a great way to spend your spare time. If that is not enough than how about the pride you will have when people stop to admire your garden, and complement your efforts.

Many an afternoon has been spent sitting on the patio by the pond enjoying some free time and taking in the secret world of my garden. There are many people who have beautiful landscapes or gardens that rarely ever just sit and enjoy them, mostly because of their lifestyle these are used only for dinner parties or when entertaining. Every week the landscaper comes by and takes care of the maintenance and it is a totally hands off experience. What a shame that they never experience the secret world of the garden.

The Secret World Of The Garden

 Yes gardens do have a secret world there are insects such as butterflies, praying mantis, dragonflies, bees, hornets, and a host of other insects that are all a part of the garden. They are all there and serve a purpose as well as make the garden possible by doing their part and making sure it survives.

There are many other visitors as well birds, squirrels,  toads, frogs, snakes , and other reptiles that call your garden home as well as the occasional possum or raccoon. Also on the list we could add the neighborhood cat and maybe a chipmunk or two. All these creatures are truly fascinating to watch and it is easy to get lost for big chunks of time watching as the show unfolds.

History

I started my horticultural career back in my home town of Miami, Florida at the age of 8. Back then my main duties were to pull weeds out of my grandmothers zoysia lawn and to help with picking the fruit off of the mango, papaya,orange, grapefruit, lemon, and avocado trees.

In my late twenties, I moved north to Illinois and attended horticultural classes at the college where I worked. I learned
about greenhouse propagation and management, as well as turf
grass, soil and fertilizer, and sports turf management.

My resume also includes several high schools, hospitals and my own landscape maintenance business. Along the way I have picked up a lot of information, techniques, short cuts, and even scientific facts. Which I will be happy to share with you.
