If you have been reading garden blogs for any length of time you’ve probably come across John Markowski’s The Obsessive Neurotic Gardener. John is gardener based out of rural New Jersey and has designed his gardens over the years to focus on ornamental grasses and native plants. We began the chat discussing his garden’s evolution and how he came to become a passionate ornamental grass enthusiast and how he is now channeling that passion into a book! We also talked about his involvement with a pipeline project that has directly affected his property and how you can be an advocate for yourself should something similar happen to you.
