At most online garden stores, the people tending the garden are miles away from the experts dispensing virtual advice in e-newsletters and blogs. Heck, many times they don’t even work for the same company.
But not Briscoe… resident writer, planter, conservationist, cowboy and dog walker at The Grower’s Exchange central digs in rural Virginia.
Briscoe’s keyboard has dirt in it, his mouse is jealous of the one tied to his computer, and his internal clock is trained to follow the cycle of the changing seasons.
A Gardener Knows All the Dirt
Besides growing hundreds of flowers, trees and vegetables you can buy at the Grower’s Exchange, Briscoe is always fiddlin’ around with new ways grow great products, like his unique undercover strawberry orchard. And he balances his forward-pointing green thumb with a steely respect for all of Mother Nature’s friends and habitats. (Briscoe tends cattle and has aquariums full of fish down on the farm, giving us a true surf & turf paradise.)
Briscoe is a member of many garden and nature-related organizations including The Garden Writers Association and The Herb Society of America. He has been a contributing editor to a number of gardening publications including Fine Gardening and Horticulture Magazine. The Growers Exchange has been featured in numerous national publications including The Wall Street Journal, Cooking Light, Sierra and Richmond Home. His plants have been featured on the Martha Stewart Show as well as HBO’s John Adams series and the movie, The New World.
Finally, the lifelong Eagle Scout even has a little flotilla including everything from a johnboat to a skiff.
As you can plainly see, Briscoe knows his stuff. And his favorite hobby of all is helping you know your stuff better.
