I started gardening when I was a little girl with a small vegetable garden which got bigger every year or two. I later became interested in houseplants and various flowering plants. I like to grow from seed as well as propagate cuttings.
I am also a pond keeper with three small ponds. They are stocked with goldfish--comets and shubunkins and a few ryunkin fantails. The plants consist of hardy lilies, black taro, canna lilies, parrot feather, cattails and dwarf umbrella palm.
Three years ago I got my dream job in a wholesale green house planting seeds and plugs and grooming plants for sale. I thought it might help with my addiction to plants but I think I have gotten worse!
I’ve since changed jobs and now manage a greenhouse for a small local municipality. Not only do I get to grow from seed and propagate, but I also design, plant and maintain all the public gardens for the village. Our gardens are planted seasonally (3 seasons) and then get involved with Christmas decorations for our village.
