Former interior designer who loves to garden and is trying to get back into it. I mainly grow plants in containers on my caged lanai in SW Florida and outdoors on the terraces of my office. Im game for almost anything, (2003) trying blueberries, a Meidland Rose with herbs planted around the base (2004 edit: that didnt work well), training rosemary topiaries (currently not that great) and the summer standbys for z10 cannas and caladiums.
For the gardening year 2004, Im going to tackle the landscaping in front of our home creating a little courtyard with Tuscan feeling but mainly native plants (this should be interesting). (Edit: 2005, well maybe this year. 2004 with a sick husband and the canes....well, 2005 is a new year in the garden.)(2008: its always a new year in the garden
In Michigan I designed herbaceous borders in the English style for many homes and worked on the historic trust gardens of Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills Michigan.
Helped get the Community Garden at Lakes Park Fort Myers organized but my new business cut my involvement short. If you have time, this garden project is just awesome and the location is excellent.
I live in: US
My zone is: SWFL Z10 FortMyers
