About I Just Went My Plants

“This is not just a book about being a great gardener, in fact it is about the process of becoming a joyful gardener. Rick Vuyst has spent a good deal of his life amassing stories, ideas, and more importantly, experiences. He shares those freely and allows us to participate in his journeys, his insights, and his love of this thing we call gardening. Gardening is not brain surgery, and he encourages us to have fun and to experiment.” ─Dr. Allen Armitage, Professor Emeritus of Horticulture, University of Georgia
