G. Edwin Varner grew up on a farm helping his father in the crop fields and assisting his mother in the flower and vegetable gardens. This early experience and learning eventually lead him to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Botany.
For twenty years he successfully owned and operated a fragrant flower mail-order nursery. Unlike most mail-order nurseries publishing colorful but expensive pictorial catalogs, his frugal catalog extensively described the flowers he grew. He once said, "I write a thousand words worth a picture in my catalogs." Today, he has the same style of writing (thankfully with fewer words) through a variety of enjoyable and informative ebooks. This time, the ebooks include color photos of each flower.
He encourages you to cultivate something unique, beautiful and delightful in your gardens. His motto is "read about it, see it, grow it, and enjoy it!"
G. Edwin Varner is the owner of Green Thumb Publications and lives in a rural area of northeastern Ohio, USA.
