Being in his first year of studies at Niagara College, Matthew's unique situation allows him to learn about the latest trends and methods while forcing him to find alternative methods to some of the more costly methods. So if you're looking for cheaper alternatives to buying plants at a garden center or wondering why many plants come up with purple hues in the spring then you've come to the right place.
So welcome, welcome to a place where I share what I learn while I'm out puttering around my own garden and what I learn in my studies. I may have only two years experience working for a garden center but I've been doing my best to soak up everything I can from both practical and scientific backgrounds. I've learnt much from my time at Niagara College, more from working in the garden center and even more from my own garden. I've read hundreds of books and magazines and am always seeking out professional nurserymen, designers and writers to pick their brains. All this because my father asked me to water three tomato plants.......yes, I've come a long way, but for the rest of the journey, on my way to my life goal, I'd like you to join me!
I am simply a gardener who loves plants, nature, writing, photography, art and all things rustic, vintage and unique. Leave a comment or connect with me on Twitter! I'd love to hear from you!
