Welcome to tahoekay's Member Page
I moved to Lake Tahoe almost two years ago after living in the central valley of California for most of my life. Although I had had roses, other than that I had never gardened. Ironically, the house we bought here four years ago (for its view) has a good-sized yard with the most elaborate garden in the neighborhood.
I was terrified and immediately set out to learn such things as the difference between a pansy and a petunia. Since then, I have found that I very much enjoy gardening and learning about this subject.
Areas of special interest include roses, organic gardening (because of clarity problems in the lake) and cold-climate gardening generally. (Zone 5 may not seem very cold, but for many months of the year it freezes every night and thaws almost every day. This is challenging for roses and many other plants.)
I live in: United States
My zone is: z5 Lake Tahoe
