About the author

Rosefiend Cordell

Rosefiend Cordell (aka Melinda R. Cordell) is a former city horticulturist, rose garden potentate, greenhouse manager, perennials factotum, landscape designer, and a certified master naturalist. I've been working in horticulture in one way or another since I was in high school. These days I write gardening books because my back is done with shovel work. That's why I'm finding the best, low-maintenance ways to garden, while finding new, ecologically-friendly ways to improve your landscape and grow vegetables, fruits, and nuts in your backyard. All this with a minimum of weeding! Because I am no fan of weeding.
