About Sumo Gardener

Hello and welcome to Sumo Gardener! My name is Ann Katelyn and I've dedicated most of my life to one of my favorite things in the world, gardening!

My gardening experience started as a child. I was always in the garden and since then it has blossomed into a life long passion.

Ann Katelyn Sumo Gardener Founder

I love taking care of flowers and plants and have become well-versed with plants found in desert areas, tropics and the Mediterranean and am contatly pushing myself to learn more and gain experience with plants around the world.

Sumo Gardener was created to provide information about gardening to beginner, intermediate and advanced gardeners aroud the world. Whether you find yourself in need of advice regarding a specific plant, flower, tree or more broadly for your whole garden, your lawn or planning for a garden, Sumo Gardener can help.

We also provide advice with regard to the best gardening tools, materials, seasons and even weather conditions for gardening. 

You can use Sumo Gardener as a tool to start gardening, by starting with basic gardening advice and expanding to become an expert gardener over time.

One area that I am increasingly becoming more passionate about is edible plants. I firmly believe that fruit trees and vegetable gardens should be planted in all gardens where possible, and so Sumo Gardener also provides comprahensive information on many edibles.

I have been a fan of flowers and plants ever since I was a kid. It was from there when I have realized the idea of having a blog of my own for people who share the same interest. I have studied and worked with a vast range of varieties, ranging from the popular world-class roses down to the rarest and most exotic orchids.

Through this, I encourage every enthusiast to be a member by signing up. Interaction is encouraged at Sumo Gardener and we love engaging with our community of gardeners. This engagement is great for everyone to meet and learn from eachother, starting from the type of seed they own, down to the time of sowing, fertilizer brand, and a whole lot more.

Through Sumo Gardener my learning and my love for gardening has blossomed even more and we are so excited to share the love of gardening with you all.
