About Me...And Welcome!
and welcome! My name is Anja and I am the webmaster of www.gardening-advice.net.
For as long as I can think I have been a plant enthusiast and I have been growing plants since I was a teenager.
After finishing school I began a two year apprenticeship as a landscape gardener in Germany. I was working in a large landscaping company for two years learning the trade as well as going to a school.
During this time we were laying out and planting gardens for people. This taught me the fundamental basics of garden design, landscaping and gave me a practical and broad knowledge base of garden plants.
My apprenticeship was followed by a professional program in Landscape Design in Germany and involved a thesis on Robinsonian Gardens in Ireland. For this I had to travel to Ireland to study the historical 'Wild Robinsonian Gardens'...and of course we decided to move to Ireland after I finishing with my professional program.
In 1998 we moved to the South-West of Ireland and started a garden center. Running a garden center for over 13 years and dealing with amateur gardeners on a daily basis has taught me a lot about the problems that people have with growing plants and gardening.
Through this website I would like to share some of my knowledge with you and help you with growing a beautiful garden.
I also published my first gardening book with Amazon Kindle. It is the first one of a series: 'Gardening With Little Miss Greenfingers'. It is called Growing Culinary Herbs In Containers - Healthy&Delicious!. Have a look if you are interested. It is also available through this website here.
I would also like to ask you to share your thoughts and feedback about this website with me. I am always looking for ways to improve this website and provide better information for you. If you have thoughts, feedback or questions you can reach me through my contact page. I would be delighted to hear from you!
