About The Author:
I am a horticulturist and plant grower with over 25 years of experience in the nursery and agricultural industry but I have a lifelong passion for plants and gardening. I have grown tea in my own home garden for years and enjoy it as an edible and as an ornamental. When speaking to people about tea, the one thing that is always clear is that there are little to no references on growing tea in a home garden. That's because tea is not your average agricultural product and most information that you find is more suited to farmers and large growers. I saw a need for creating a book that could help gardeners learn more about growing tea from someone who had grown tea! I don't consider myself a tea grower, I like to think I'm a tea-gardener! So From one gardener to another - I am delighted to finally have this to help you on your tea journey!
