Thanks for visiting! This is my website containing gardening tips and perennial flower information - where I answer some of your questions and show you my favorite garden plants and how to grow them.
I'm Doug Green, a former nursery owner who used to grow 1600 varieties of perennials in my nursery every year (along with 600 varieties of annuals but we don't talk about those - friends don't let friends plant annuals) :-)
I had a pretty impressive collection of perennials (some 300 varieties of daylilies alone) when I sold the farm because I was writing for a living and life moves on. Now, I'm back to gardening and collecting but moving a bit slower (hey, I'm not 30 any more!) but still building new gardens every year.
I hope the articles and plant profiles here are useful to you and I wish you nothing but the best in your gardening adventure
