One might expect the publisher of a gardening magazine and his wife, a writer and lecturer on plants, to have a fine garden.
And indeed, they do!
Mil took a trip to Eric Hofley's home Garden. He and his wife and partner Julia Hofley are the publishers of Michigan Gardener, which is available in nurseries and plant stores and by subscription. Julia Hofley is a frequent speaker at garden clubs and conventions. They are both well-respected in the plant world.
“Our garden is on one acre and has over 5,000 plants with vibrant colors,” Julia Hofley said. “In 2005, we had to get rid of overgrown buckthorn plants and poison ivy, which took two years to remove. In 2006, we planned an all-white garden for our wedding. Our theme is, ‘grow it to know it.’”

Mil Hurley makes a visit to Detroit Abloom to visit Nancy Weigandt and Tom Milano. Detroit Abloom is proud to be a pioneer of cut flower farming in Detroit. They hope their efforts will go beyond beautifying vacant land and creating good jobs; "our deepest wish is that Detroit will inspire the world by becoming a place where anyone can come for community, healing and love." Detroit Abloom envision Detroit blooming from within as more and more people express their love for the city and one another, and outwardly, by growing flowers (especially dahlias), until they see love and natural beauty growing everywhere. They hope you'll join us in this vision by sharing love with each other and by bringing our flowers into your life.
