Robert Silver Pro Gardening Blog

Robert Silver, Editor in Chief

Robert is a seasoned master gardener who has toured different popular gardens worldwide and published numerous gardening articles. Besides that, Robert is like you—he loves it when he is busy in his garden and learns by doing.

His passion for gardening began more than two decades ago when he moved into his new house. The landscape here was overgrown and untidy. He decided to start on the journey of converting this place into a little paradise.

And so, he read almost every book he came across on gardening, browsed through seed and plant catalogs and walked into local nurseries and botanical gardens. His effort bore him fruits—moreover, his passion became a profession.

Today, Robert is not only tending to his landscape but is also a writer and speaker. He shares his gardening experiences on the Pro Gardening blog—he is also the chief editor for this superb site.
