About Us

I am Don Burke, one of the authors at My Garden Guide.  I am a horticulturist that cultivates, grows, and cares for plants, ranging from shrubs and fruits to flowers. I do it in my own garden and in my nursery. I show you how to take care of your garden and how to perform garden landscaping in an easy way, step by step.

I am originally from Sydney and I wrote in local magazines. Later on, I have decided more than two decades ago, to create my own blog.

My area of specialization is related to orchid care, succulent care, and the study of the substrate and the soil. Therefore you will see many articles dedicated to these disciplines. I also provide advice about how to improve the landscape design of your garden.

Currently I own a nursery near Chicago, in Deerfield. I describe in these articles, plants, trees, flowers and shrubs from all the United States, and some that you will only find in Europe and that we have photographed during our trips.
