I am a Ph.D. (Wisconsin-Madison, Go Badgers!) organic chemist with a passion for golf and gardening. My grandfather got me interested in planting trees, shrubs, vegetables, etc. when I was a very young kid. I�ve been doing so ever since. I started Rose gardening in 2003 and it has become a very addictive hobby. I bought a new home in 2001 and have spent the last few years landscaping the place. I�m particularly fond of Black Gum trees and have planted several on my property along with many other species.
