My Inspiration

When I was a new gardener, the most trouble I had was when to what.  Years of making mistakes and wasting money were frustrating. I pulled together my experiences and researched scientific journals to fill in the gaps in my knowledge. Then I began teaching what I learned to gardeners. My big problem was there wasn’t a book I could use for my classes that covered the topics I covered. This guide, A Seasonal Gardener’s Handbook, came out of those classes and questions from gardeners.

After reading this handbook, you will understand how the Earth’s cycles and seasons affect your garden. You will be able to create a beautiful, successful garden with the Earth as your guide.
