Welcome to the Masters of Horticulture!  My name is Jay White and I am a 49-year-old non-traditional student working on a Master’s of Science in Horticulture at Texas A&M University (Whoop!). 

Coming to A&M has been the second best decision I have ever made.  I am the round peg that finally found the round hole.  I am surrounded by the best and brightest of the horticultural world and  I am truly blessed to be able to learn so much from so many talented people. 

While at A&M, I discovered that I liked writing about gardening almost as much as actually growing things.  That led to this blog.  I chose to call my blog “The Masters of Horticulture” because it was my intent to document all I learned on my path toward my M.S. in Hort.  The blog has evolved into a place that not only highlights the amazing things I am learning, but also highlights the many amazing horticulturists that I encounter as I wander down this horticultural path.  I call these people “Masters of Horticulture”.  By listening to and working with those that are masters of the horticultural arts, it is my desire to one day be just like them.

I hope you like the blog.  It is my sincere desire that, somewhere in its pages, you will find the tips, tricks and tools necessary to help you become a master of horticulture too.  I will be posting weekly, so check back often!
