“Isn’t that interesting?” is the guiding refrain for Teresa Watkins, horticulturist, landscape designer, and environmental consultant. Teresa has been an avid reader, trivia buff, and researcher ever since she earned money to buy her first Ripley’s Believe It or Not paperback at her elementary school book fair. Surrounded by a family of readers, books, and encyclopedias, Teresa’s passion for acquiring and sharing information has blossomed into a career which combines her love of gardening and research with teaching how to protect our environment. 
Whether she’s preparing for her weekly radio call-in show “In Your Backyard”, writing an article based on her “Gardening with Soul” philosophy, planning her next workshop, or contributing to a horticultural database, Teresa scours the digital world to make sure she has the most current information to share and to find bits of wisdom, wit, and/or whimsy to share with her audiences. In the process, she has discovered quotes and facts are occasionally shared with incorrect attributions or out of context. This set Teresa on her quest to identify not only who said what but how, why, and when. As Abraham Lincoln said, you can’t trust everything you read on the internet.
A Gardener’s Compendium: Gardening in a Twitter World In 140 Characters Or More is a collection of garden facts, quotes, anecdotes and history categorized by context into themes and appropriate hashtags. The broad scope of this series and the painstaking efforts Teresa has made to ensure the accuracy of the content and its source will make A Gardener’s Compendium an invaluable resource for new gardeners, garden writers, bloggers, trivia fans, teachers, editors, researchers, social media enthusiasts, speakers, and anyone who desires to provide an interesting fact for presentations or is just looking for a source of like-minded inspiration.
