The horticultural help you have been looking for is here just for the asking.  I am the Gardening Guru, here to answer your most perplexing gardening questions, and to teach you how fun and enjoyable gardening can be!  I have numerous years of experience in the horticulture field, from owning my own landscaping company, to wholesale/retail/distributor general manager of a landscape supply company, to Landscape Supervisor of an 81 acre county park, Executive Director of the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, New Jersey, to currently the Executive Director of the Montclair Foundation and Van Vleck House and Gardens.  I can be heard on WGHT 1500 AM, broadcasting from Wayne, New Jersey, on my weekly radio show, or seen in my monthly column for The Gardener News.  I have a wealth of information to share, just ask the question.  All my life I have tried to give back as much as I have learned to others, and the web is making my giving on a slightly larger scale.  If you like this page, tell a friend and share a good thing.  Also sign up for my monthly newsletter with tips and tricks to get you through the gardening year.

Give whatever you can to the charity of your choice.  Even the smallest of donations will go far in this time of need.  If everyone in this country gave $1 to help, it would go a long, long way.  Don't know where to go?  My personal charity of choice is Feed The Children .  I support Feed The Children throughout the year.  It is a great feeling to know you are helping someone in need, and to me that is the best gift you can receive.  Give it a try!
