As a GCV member who likes all things technical and a bit of blogging, Nina asked me to be the administrator of the GCV Horticulture Blog. “I’m not a horticulturalist,” I protested. “You’re a master gardener…” she countered. “Just write what you know.” I know all too well that being a master gardener makes me a little knowledgeable about a multitude of things and master of none, but trained to find answers.
I looked up the definition of horticulture: “|ˈhôrtiˌkəl ch ər|,the art or practice of garden cultivation and management.” Well, maybe I can stretch the definition to include my amateur delight in gardening and I can communicate my adventures and misadventures in the garden. I love to garden with a special interest all things insect, all things pond, all things photography, and all things birds.
Thank goodness GCV Horticulture Chair, Mary Eades, will continue her important educational ‘Hello’ blog filled with advice, monthly chores, garden instruction, and tips from gardeners in all the clubs. Her ‘Hellos’ will be the heart of this blog. I will be posting Mary’s blogs, thus relieving Nina to concentrate of her many other duties.
