The horticultural help you have been looking for is here just for the asking.  I am the Gardening Guru®, here to answer your most perplexing gardening questions, and to teach you how fun and enjoyable gardening can be!  I have over 25 years of experience in the horticulture field, from owning my own landscaping company, to general manager of a landscape supply company, to Landscape Supervisor of an 81 acre county park, to Executive Director of three public gardens.  I can be heard on WGHT 1500 AM, broadcasting from Wayne, New Jersey, on my weekly radio show, The Gardening Guru, or heard monthly on Martha Stewart's Sirius radio program "Morning Living with Betsy Karetnick and Kim Fernandez".  I have a wealth of information to share, just ask the question.  All my life I have tried to give back as much as I have learned to others, and the web is making my giving on a slightly larger scale.  If you like this page, tell a friend and share a good thing. 

David is currently booking lectures for Fall 2011 / Spring 2012.

Give whatever you can to the charity of your choice.  Even the smallest of donations will go far in this time of need.  If everyone in this country gave $1 to help, it would go a long, long way.  Don't know where to go?  My personal charity of choice is Feed The Children .  I support Feed The Children throughout the year.  It is a great feeling to know you are helping someone in need, and to me that is the best gift you can receive.  Give it a try!

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails Daring Greatly so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

 Theodore Roosevelt, twenty-sixth President of the United States (1901-1909), Freemason
