  • What is a garden myth you hear frequently which you know is untrue?
    Blueberries and Pomegranates are the best source of nutrients you can grow at home.
  • And, what is the reality?
    Although blueberries and pomegranates are good for you, there are a number of fruits that are better including: kei apple (aka tropical apricot), babaco, and California huckleberries to name a few.

    Jeans, Polo shirt (with collar), and Barmah hat.
  • What is the one question about gardening you would really like people to ask you?
    What fruits and vegetables should I grow in my garden?
  • And what's the answer?
    Depends on your location!
  • Who is your own favorite gardening personality on TV, radio or in print? Why?
    David Ross.
  • Do you have a gardening philosophy you would like to share with other gardeners? What is it?
    1. Find a credible source of information for the cultural needs of your plants.
    2. Persons who think "organic" has a defined meaning are not credible sources of information.

  • What plant have you tried to grow that has given you the most trouble? Or, what plant would you like to grow and can't, and why?
    Contrary to the advertisements of nurseries, north-american raspberries will not produce in my climate (unless you dump several bags of ice on them every day in December).
