I'm 32. Started working for a Wholesale Plant Nursery in Southern Coastal Massachusetts the day after graduating from High School. Worked my way up through the ranks in the following 8 years to become Sales Manager / Assistant Grower. And passed the testing to become a Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist.

Times changed and I left the nursery. And since then, my knowledge has been unfortunately slipping away.

However, my interest is still there. I do not do much home gardening, but enjoy admiring friends & neighbors gardens to help refresh what little horticultural knowledge I have left.

The problem working at a nursery is that I was only subject to learning the plants that we grew. It was a very large variety, but not everything. For exacmple, we did not grow any shrubs or woodies. I was limited to Herbs, Annuals, Ornamental Grasses, Groundcovers & Perennials.

If it matters, I now work in Fiber Optics

I live in: United States
