I bring together my 15 years as a horticultural journalist -- as Newsday's Garden Detective advice columnist -- and my training as a Cornell University master gardener, understanding of soil science, pest and disease identification and control, plus a deep appreciation of the benefits of gardening and how plants improve mood, health and real estate values (!) to ensure your yard is a beautiful and usable space.
I practice Integrated Pest Management, value xeriscape -- or drought-tolerant -- plants and employ companion planting whenever possible to best care for people, property and the environment.
And I'll share delicious and nutritious recipes to get the most from what you grow.
