    Bruce Asakawa has been active in the green industry, landscape design, and gardening communication for most of his life. He graduated from Cal Poly, Pomona, with a major in landscape architecture, then went on to develop and teach horticulture classes with the University of California Extension Program. During the early nineties, Bruce was asked to host the West Coast Garden Line, the popular live call-in garden radio show that aired throughout California. Several years ago, the program became Garden Compass with co-hosts Sharon Asakawa and John Bagnasco.

    Sharon Asakawa and her husband Bruce are, without question, the most highly respected gardening experts in California. Sharon has been part of the nursery industry for decades. She began working in their family gardening center shortly after marrying Bruce in the early 1960s. Ultimately, she was in charge of the floral department where she gained hands-on practical experience. As their business grew, Sharon and Bruce began leading garden tours to great locales around the world, helping introduce the garden travelers to notable gardens and plants. In addition to this book for Cool Springs Press, Sharon is the author or co-author of Bruce and Sharon Asakawa's California Gardener's Guide, California Gardener's Handbook, California Gardening Rhythms, Jackson & Perkins Beautiful Roses Made Easy, and Jackson & Perkins Selecting, Growing, and Combining Outstanding Perennials.She is also co-host of the nationally syndicated GardenLife Radio Show, which reaches 1.1 million listeners every weekend.
