My nursery had its early beginnings in 2003, when I took cuttings from my grandmother's heirloom hydrangea. I propagated 400+ baby hydrangea plants that I began selling at the local Marietta Square Farmers' Market in Cobb County, GA.
Here's a photo from my market days. Over a span of seven years, I was a vendor at 12 Metro-Atlanta farmers' markets. I sold many types of nursery plants and seeds. And it all started with those baby hydrangeas.
As a horticulturist, I always enjoyed propagating my own plants by using many techniques: starting from seed, sticking cuttings, layering, grafting, and even micropropagation (tissue-culture propagation).
I've specialized in heirloom and native plants, most of which have great stories behind them.
In addition to my work as a horticulturist, I'm also a professional writer. Although I've written for many clients in many industries for many years, I specialize in writing for the green industry - horticulture, agriculture, floriculture, viticulture, landscaping, and landscape design.
