 pond in flower
Natural pond planted exclusively to local aquatic plants and surrounds that I designed and built in the garden of the house where I lived in Wilhelmshaven, from where I conducted my horticultural business between December 2001 until November 2004

During my long and ongoing association with Germany I have gained considerable knowledge and experience in the following areas

  • Hydroculture
  • Ponds and wetlands
  • Floriculture and floristry
  • Environmental protection
  • Urban nature conservation

    In addition to the above I greatly increased my general horticultural knowledge and expertise of Gardening in Europe in particular in the field of temperate plants in particular bulbs.

    During this entire period up until today I have subscribed to the most read and respected German Gardening magazine mein schöner Garten Europe's biggest circulation gardening magazine from which I have learned a great deal about horticulture, landscaping and gardening in Germany.
