What’s your favorite plant and why?

Not sure I have a favorite but one that I’m constantly drawn to is the Japanese Aralia, especially the camouflage, which is a lovely yellow, lime and green variegated variety. I love the shape of the leaves, makes me think of a Jurassic era plant that has survived the test of time. I love that they are a shade-loving, low-maintenance plant, which is perfect for my forested yard.   

What’s your best gardening tip?

If you don’t succeed, try again and again and again. Experimentation is key to successful gardening.

What’s going on in your personal garden right now?

I don’t have a garden per se, but I do have some potted specimens that decorate my deck. Mostly my “gardening” consists of tending to my indoor plants, but I sure hope to have a proper outdoor garden in the near future. 

 

What’s your favorite thing about working for Cornell Farms?

I enjoy the immense learning opportunities that Cornell Farm offers. There is such a wealth of knowledge and information available and I truly appreciate the chance to discover new plants on a daily basis.
