About Us

I grew up in a small town where our family home was surrounded by gardens and small farms. From a very young age I was taught how to grow and care for a wide variety of house plants and to cultivate a garden.

Even before I could ride a bike, I could tell my Pothos from my Philodendron! Over the years, I have picked up handy tips and tricks to get the best out of my garden and indoor plants. So, for me, plant parenting has been as much a way of life as a hobby. Horticulture is my passion.

I created Garden and Sunshine as a platform to share my love of gardening with the world. If you’re looking for tips on how to cultivate plants in your home or garden whether to produce food or for ornamental purposes, then my hope is that you will find all you need on GardenAndSunshine.com.

As an avid gardener, it is inevitable that I mention and link to various products and gear I use.  Please assume that those links are affiliate links which means I may earn a commission if you click and buy.  Put another way, Garden and Sunshine is reader-supported. When you buy through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Garden and Sunshine is never directly compensated to provide positive opinions on products, services, websites, or any other topics.
