My parents are avid and mostly organic gardeners, and now that I own, uh, *tend* six acres of our Earth, my gardening gene is fully expressing itself. I am interested in all zone 6a perennials, especially long-blooming, low-maintenance ones such as reblooming iris and dayilies. I’m also into spring, summer, and fall blooming bulbs, flowering vines, aquatic, woodland, and xeric plants, container gardens, houseplants, Square Foot veggie gardens, fruits and berries, harvest preservataion, four season gardening, compost, garden art, etc. I also have a small rose bed (not exactly low maintenance, but worth it). I use only organic methods, except for having to resort to a spray for poison ivy far away from the house. To sum it up: Too much out there, too little time! I work full time as a technical writer, telecommuting from my home office. I have a wonderful husband, 2 boys, 4 cats, 1 golden retriever, and 1 dachshund.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z6a central PA
