Hi! My name is Michael, and I live in Erwin, Tennessee, which is in the far eastern section of Tennessee. My garden is relatively new (I've only been working on it for a couple of years now) but I've been interested in plants and horticulture ever since I was a kid and helped in the garden with my parents and my mom's older sisters, Audrey and Emma. For years, I lived in Gainesville, Florida and got used to subtropical gardening. When I moved back to Tennessee, I lugged some of my favorites, including a gardenia, a few palms and oleanders, and a tea olive shrub. They all live in pots now, and most of them spend the winter on a sheltered patio with a tall brick wall to the west and north. I put them in the garage only when the temps start to fall below 20f. My gardening plans include a large greenhouse where I can revive my "florida" garden and an extensive garden plan for the rest of the yard (approx. three acres). I look forward to meeting more gardening friends here.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z7 TN
