|Comment||I would just like to say that Mr Alonzo has been very helpful in dealing with this plant, I had no clue as to how to deal with it over the winter & he explained things very clearly for me, the response time was excellent & he was very precise & polite with his explanation - with the information that he provided I am able to look after this plant & see it through the winter, thank you very much for your help Tom & don't be surprised if you hear from me again with many more questions about my other plants, very sincerely, Jutta McColl|
I have been a gardener for 20 years with perennials both growing from seed and from nurseries. I went through the Master Gardener Program from Kansas State University Cooperative Extension Service and I answered questions on the Hotline a few years ago for the Wyandotte County Kansas Extension Service. I have also lived in the Florida, California, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas, Kansas and Missouri and am experienced with a variety of climates, soils and weather conditions.
I have been growing perennials for over 20 years now. I am self-taught mostly except for a master gardener class. I have experimented with all kinds of perennials including many that are not common to my area. I have read hundreds of books and grown hundreds of varieties of plants and hope to make it a business some day. I have become versed in botanical names and growing conditions and what I don't know off of the top of my head I can usually easily find in my vast array of research material and botanical and horticultural contacts. I especially enjoy experimenting with growing plants out of zone.
