Hi, I’m Carol. I was born and raised in a small city in East Asia, but have lived in Europe and South America in my adult years.
Although I do not have a horticulture degree nor decades of experience in gardening, one thing I am proud of is that I have never lost my childlike curiosity, my insatiable desire to learn and research things, despite being in my 40s.
I love gardening and also love asking “why”.
There is a lot of information out there about gardening. But they are mostly just common sense or myths passing around without much backup. And they often tell me what to do, how to do things, without explaining why. I like asking why. I mean even fun, silly questions that most people take for granted like: Why are some succulents fuzzy, velvety? : -)
AskGardening is my quest to dig deep into anything gardening. I hope to offer some well-researched information to help everyone (myself included) grow our green thumb.

See you there!
