He is the coauthor of five books with his mother, the immensely popular garden writer Lois Hole. He is also a frequent contributor to national gardening publications. Since earning a bachelor of science in agriculture, Jim has continued to work for the family operation and also has gone on to become a popular garden columnist and radio and TV gardening personality. Jim is a frequent speaker before garden clubs and at trade shows across North America. He loves to share what he's learned from over 30 years of hands-on experience in the greenhouse. His guiding principle when sharing gardening knowledge is to stick to "practical advice and the science behind it."
