I am Jennifer Arnott and I am the writer and photographer behind The Fabulous Garden. I have been gardening since I was old enough to hold a shovel, tending my own little plot within my father’s larger vegetable garden in Lively, Ontario. Moving away from home put an end to gardening for a season.
Eventually, I landed an apartment with a balcony and spent 6 years lugging watering cans back and forth to the kitchen sink to nurture what eventually grew to be 35 planters, filled mostly with flowers, each summer.
In 2003 I bought a piece of land with a very small house in Toronto—by the end of the first summer I had removed all of the lawn on the property and planted a garden.
Creating that garden has taught me quite a bit. But, part of why I love gardening is because there’s always something new to learn! My horticultural education has included killing hundreds of plants (seriously, that’s how you learn), earning a Certificate in Horticulture Science from Humber College, and spending time asking questions of more experienced gardeners.
The Fabulous Garden is my outlet for sharing my passion, and helping those who are interested in sprouting and growing their green thumb.
Let’s getting gardening!
