Gardener and Plant Geek
I am a long time home gardener who obsessively tends to and photographs his plants in order to help others decide which plants they should add to their garden.

The search for the ultimate garden - when one perennial slows down, another is ready to step into the spotlight. Be it blooms, textural contrast or texture. This is our goal. Containers, well, that's a different game.
“Over promise and under deliver”
“Measure once and cut twice”
“Fool me once, shame on … actually, let’s fast forward to the fool me twice part.”
Mantras I live by, albeit unintentionally, in life and in the garden.
I’m not proud but I own it. My therapist would be proud.
It's 60 degrees here in New Jersey - spring has arrived! Now's the perfect time to get started crossing off some of those gardening tasks on you list!
After much thought and in depth analysis, I finally settled on the six plants to include in my annual Bluestone Perennials order. Check that, it is my semi-annual order, one for spring and one for fall.
This is a very deliberate process.
