Flower gardening is a pleasant activity but can become overwhelming for first-time gardeners. With decisions on what plants to choose, where to plant and how to care for them, new gardeners can get stressed-out quickly. Green Thumb Publications offers entertaining and informative ebooks on flower gardening written by G. Edwin Varner with valuable assistance in turning that stress into a relaxing activity.
G. Edwin Varner grew up on a farm helping his father in the crop fields and assisting his mother in the flower and vegetable gardens. This early experience and learning lead him to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Botany.
For twenty years he successfully owned and operated a fragrant flower mail-order nursery. Unlike most mail-order nurseries publishing colorful but expensive pictorial catalogs, his frugal catalog extensively described the flowers he grew. He once said, “I write a thousand words worth a picture in my catalogs.” Today, he has the same style of writing (thankfully with fewer words) through a variety of enjoyable and informative ebooks. This time, the ebooks include color photos of each flower.
He encourages you to cultivate something unique and beautiful in your gardens. His motto is “read about it, see it, grow it and enjoy it!”
G. Edwin Varner is the owner of Green Thumb Publications and lives in a rural area of northeastern Ohio, USA.
