30 years of experience ~ What can we do for you?
We are Janet Macunovich and Steven Nikkila. We have 30 years
experience as professional gardeners and trainers. We share
with you what we've learned in thousands of gardens about
practicality, beauty, fun and simplicity. These are tried-and-true
ideas and tools that we've developed or received from others, and
present here in easy, illustrated how-to's.
We add new information every day, and plan to keep at it for at
least another 30 years. It's invigorating and rewarding to help you
grow or connect you to others who will help.
Being part of our network is free. We make our living as
gardeners and intend to keep it that way. There are no ads on this
site, but you will find links to businesses that supply the plants
and materials we mention.
