I am in central Maryland and have been gardening somewhat seriously for about 2 years now. I love designing my own landscapes and using perennials as much as possible. After all, looking at the garden is much more fun for me than working in it constantly. (Especially with a bum back) I participate in the MAG swaps in the fall and spring and love getting together and talking gardening with everyone. I am starting to try wintersowing.

I am still learning what my favorite plants are. I love hostas, daylilies, tall phlox, gaillarda, and most anything that isn’t a lot of work and is a long bloomer. I love the color purple and have all kinds of different plants in my garden in all kinds of shades and tints of purple.

I am also still learning about food gardening. In 2007, I grew tomatoes, zucchini, watermelon and tried to grow peppers and onions, but didn’t get anything from them. I think I planted the transplants too late.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z7 MD

My favorite forum 1 is Mid-Atlantic Gardening.
