Welcome! I’m Jocelyn, the owner, and creator of this site.  I’m a twenty thirty-something with a great passion for gardening. I am an official “Master Gardener,” as certified by my state’s University Extension office, which means that I get to help fulfill their mission of spreading accurate gardening information to the masses! Oftentimes, gardening wisdom is passed on from generations, and while many of these techniques have been proven to work, others are not recommended. It’s my job to make things easier for all of you.

With that being said, my specialty is gardening in cool climates. I’ve been growing plants in Minnesota for over a decade now, and with our short growing seasons, that means that many of the things I recommend may not be necessary for those of you in warmer USDA Hardiness zones. Lucky you!

Given the nature of our extreme winters, I also have a lot (okay, maybe more than a lot) of houseplants. I’ll be honest with you though, I still kill almost every fern I buy. Oh well. C’est la vie.

I live with my partner, and two fur babies. One feline, and one rescue pup. They kind of like each other. I love them all.


I’d love to hear from you! Drop me a message anytime. 🙂

Do you have mantain any bonsai or terrarium gardens. Keep posting:)


  2. Thanks so much for your info on jade plants. I haven’t had much trouble growing house plants and have always been know for my African violets, but the jade plant that was given to me is not doing well. I gather that it’s supposed to grow “up” not hand over, so I’ll fix that right way. The main trunk is in good condition but I’m not getting any new growth and keep loosing leaves. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Faye
