COMPOST HAPPENS : Confessions of a Plantaholic
By Shelly Hargis Murphy
Something’s always happening in a garden. Sooner
or later it all it all turns to compost, including the gardener. After growing ornamentals a dozen years on a rocky hard clay slope, the queen of gardening gaffes confesses why: “I don’t do bugs, the buck stops here, some plants are X-rated and God will get even with you; attacks from crape murderers and a fat chance of rain may lead to horticultural holocaust and a decent burial; attitude is everything in a pricey pa$t-time that sure beats a shrink, may be in the genes and have one asking, ‘Can this disease be cured?’”

About the Author:

Shelly Hargis Murphy grew up in the desert Southwest in a horticultural - challenged environment. She married her college sweetheart and they moved so often the next 25 years with his coaching career she only planted annuals in pots. It wasn’t until they settled in Georgia in 1993, that she could finally put down serious roots. By 2002, when she received certification as
a Georgia Master Gardener, she’d made enough mistakes to fill a how-not-to-garden book. She and her husband, Ed, live in Carrollton.
