Ginny Stibolt
Several years ago, Ginny moved from her native Maryland to the wilds of northeastern Florida where she discovered a whole new world of plants and gardening. Click here for the Transplanted Gardener's articles on topics from rain gardens to pond management (you'll find them entertaining and useful even if you don't live in Florida.)
