To set the record straight, I have never taken the MG course. I am a lifetime student in the "gardening area". I have been around plants from 7 grade. I am well versed in many of the horticultural practices from flower arrangement to zen gardening. My expertise is in native plants and the propagation of them. At this time in my life I am a Steward for the local forest preserve, educate the boy scouts in botany when they come over for there monthly lesson, help out Habitat for Humanity in their Garden together Program, and I am attempting to finish my book on native plants. I also take at least one horticultural course a year. A number of MG come to me when they have problems. I do not know everything but I have an extensive library to research any problems
