I’m Doug Green, a semi-retired nurseryman, and award-winning author who used to grow 1600 varieties of perennials and 600–800 varieties of annuals and vegetables in my nursery before closing it down to write full time. I’ve been growing and passing along practical gardening information for over 40 years now and I’m happy to help you with organic gardening techniques that help make your garden a better place for you, your kids and pets.

I have nine gardening rules I’d like to share with you.

Doug’s Gardening Rule #1

You only have to feed your plants if you want flowers, leaves or fruit.

Doug’s Gardening Rule #2

If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong

Plants die. Life happens.

Doug’s Gardening Rule #4

There’s a full spreader load of BS on the Internet about gardening.

Doug’s Gardening Rule #5

Doug’s Gardening Rule #7

Gardening isn’t rocket science.
