    Just attended a plant swap this morning in Huntsville, AL where a Master Gardener shared his book with us. She was discussing the importance of using native hydrangeas. Can’t wait to get his book!

  2. His message, research, and wisdom are appreciated. I heard him speak a couple of years ago–he’s a great presenter and offers thought-provoking information.
