About Me

I have had a passion for gardening ever since I was a little girl.  I still remember how thrilled I was to receive my first plant; it was a miniature rose plant from my grandmother.  I had never seen anything like it before.  The tiny roses were so delicate and beautiful, and it was a perfect addition to my Barbie doll's home!  I learned a lot about gardening from my grandmother, by reading a ton of books, talking with fellow gardeners, and of course trial and error.  Although I have a good amount of knowledge, I believe that there will always be something new to learn or discover in gardening, which is wonderful because I can't get enough of it!  

I try to find inexpensive, inspirational, eco-friendly gardening ideas.  I also focus on fool-proof gardening methods for beginners.  For example, many people find growing plants from seeds difficult so I wrote step-by-step articles on how to get seeds to sprout with little effort at all.  Currently my favorite fool-proof germination methods are Homemade Greenhouse and Plastic Shopping Bag Method.      

I hope that you will benefit from my blog and if you do not have a garden of your own, I hope I will inspire you to create one of your own.  Starting a garden takes a little effort, but the reward is well worth it!
