About Us

Hey, I’m John Albuquist

I’m actually an academic consultant but I do most of my work from home.

This gives me the opportunity to do and learn more about gardening and botany, including research.

My father was a horticulturist and he passed on to me the skills and tips of keeping a garden. I literally grew up watering plants and looking at our flowers bloom.

Most of my gardening knowledge is based solely on experience and I veer towards ‘gardening on a budget’.

This blog is dedicated to beginner and even expert gardeners. I do not seek to write out of expertise but from experience and my best practices.

Our new gardening should match sustainability and our put efforts to contribute to the green movement.
