Basis of Blog
Horticulture runs in my blood. In some ways its simply who I am. This blog is my outlet for thoughts I have that relate to horticulture. Read more about me at This Horticulturalist.
I used to be very well versed in many different species of plants and could spit off all sorts of details about them, but lately I’ve felt like that knowledge could be greatly improved. So I’m doing a ‘Plant of the Week’ on this blog to talk about at least one plant that I noticed and wanted to do a small report on. Its mostly for my own benefit. It’ll allow me a reason to read through Dirr’s Manual of Woody Landscape Plants and other exciting books I just don’t crack open enough. Also to explore different plants through hands on experience.
I also try to get to places that are either related to horticulture or are all about horticulture, such as botanical gardens or parks. I’ll also try to post about events or things I know about, even if i can’t get to them. Now that I’m in graduate school, my time for this blog is less than I would prefer, but I will continue to try my best to update anyone interested with what I’m learning, seeing, or working on.
