Occupation garden writer
Location Portland, Oregon, United States
Introduction I garden in NE Portland – USDA zone 8b. Having grown up in Spokane, WA, (zone 6) I don’t take our weather here in Portland for granted. I hate telling my mom, when she admires a plant in my yard, “sorry that won’t grow in Spokane.” Although I long for the exotic plants that my brother in Phoenix, AZ, and my in-laws in Truth or Consequences, NM, can grow, I know I’ve got the best of both worlds here in Portland. We have a wealth of great nurseries, adventurous gardeners and great garden designs and I plan to share them all with you here. My disclaimer: I am not pretending to be an expert on anything other than my own garden. Nobody knows that better than me. I’ll often sound like I know what I’m talking about, and then again sometimes I’ll sound like I don’t, take it all with a grain of salt. My opinions may offend you; if that’s the case feel free to let me know. I love comments, both the good and the bad, but if you’re a spammer I’ll delete you, so don’t bother.
