About my roots
I'm a fourth generation farmer. My roots are from the mid-west, where I spent lots of time helping on my family's farms and dairies. I have fond childhood memories of planting, tending and harvesting crops, spreading manure and tending livestock.
I discovered the beauty of flowers and plants at a very young age and was fascinated by their colors, shapes and sizes. I loved picking flowers on my way to school to share with my friends. I knew then this was my passion.
After training at several horticultural schools. I went to work at one of the nations leading, family-owned nurseries, as a garden plant specialist. I discovered the satisfaction of helping homeowners enhance their outdoor living spaces.
I enjoy sharing the fun of growing great gardens, inspiring budding gardeners and sharing my knowledge.
Fascinated by cultivating and growing plants, I soon discovered the ease of making more plants.
But wait! What is one to do with so many plants? You open a nursery so you can share your treasures with others! And so the nursery was born.
Now my children and grandchildren work and play at the nursery tending plants and sharing my passion. I look forward to sharing my treasures with you on your visit to Taking Root Nursery and helping you make your gardens grow.
