My knowledge has been acquired over 30 years of working in the green plant industry. I have been a landscaper, designer, gardener, owner of a perennial nursery, operator of a greenhouse and horticulturist at a garden center. However, I do not claim to be an expert on all the plants on the website. The data on the site is a compilation of my horticulture experiences and the knowledge of experts in the field.
