And tonight, you get to chat live on #GardenChat on twitter with one of the nicest and most knowledgeable people in the business, Stacey Hirvela, senior associate garden editor at Martha Stewart Living and host of At Home in the Garden on MarthaStewart.com. The two met at the Costa Farms Social Summit a few weeks ago. (Stacey is pictured with our GMG Stacey here.)
And Stacey will be giving away my favorite soil -- Organic Mechanics. It's the caviar of soilless mixes.
Stacey's love of plants began with her grandmother, who always let her pick as many lilies of the valley as she wanted. In 1999 she attend the School of Professional Horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden.
After working as a rooftop gardener in Manhattan, she served as the horticulturist at Tavern on the Green restaurant for three years - only the second woman ever to hold the position. WOW!
Then Stacey found her home. In 2005 she joined the Martha Stewart Living staff and now works with out good friend Tony Bielaczyc planning the garden content for the magazine. And we think she does a great job sharing her knowledge and stories from the garden.
So be sure to tune in to#GardenChat on Twitter.com tonight and ask Stacey some really tough questions. I bet you won't stump her though.
