About this week's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Noelle Johnson

#273: How to Grow a Great Vegetable Garden in the Desert Southwest with Noelle Johnson [AZ Plant Lady] I didnít grow up with a green thumb. I spent much of my youth on the California beach trying to get a tan (I didnít have too much success with my fair skin and freckles). In fact, I didnít start to get interested in gardening until my husband and I moved into our first home in Phoenix, AZ in 1992.

It was an older home with lots of old rose bushes, a large lawn, California Fan Palms and citrus trees. I was eager to start planting even more plants and perused plant catalogs and put in my orders. I was surprised when most of what I had planted, died. I didnít know why, so I decided to check out some gardening books at our local library. I soon realized that I had planted the wrong type of plants for the desert garden. But, the books also opened up for me a new world of what beautiful plants that would thrive in our dry climate. It didnít take long for me to become hooked on gardeningÖ.

I received my degree in Urban Horticulture from Arizona State University. During that time, I interned at the Water Conservation Office for the City of Mesa. After graduation, I began working as a horticulturist right way for a golf course management company and later caring for the golf course and landscape areas of an adult community.

During my time working on golf courses, I earned my ISA Certified Arborist certification, which I have held since 2004.

I donít climb in the trees, but I do instruct people on how to care for their them
