Native Springfieldian Frank Shipe, a former professional gardener and landscaper, is also a writer and editor whose credits include the developmental editing of five books in the Ortho Garden Books series. Frank thinks southwest Missourians deserve a good place for the free exchange of garden wisdom and garden lore.
This website could not exist without the technical skill and generosity of Jim Teters, whose remarkable website creation program, MachineWare, makes it all a pleasure.
"Us" also must include all of the home gardeners and others who've given so generously of their time, knowledge, and good humor to help Ozarks Gardens grow. We thank them sincerely, and we thank you for visiting.
