Houseplants provide beauty, clean air, fun and diversity and allow the Michigan gardener to garden indoors, whenever and wherever, all year round.

ABOUT JULIA HOFLEY: Julia Hofley is a freelance garden writer and contributes to Michigan Gardener magazine, Fine Gardening magazine and more. She speaks to both gardening audiences each year and writes garden book reviews, articles on new plants, garden travelogues and more.

Building a collector’s garden with her husband has been a labor of love and a test of endurance as they live in an active animal-browsing community in Michigan and have learned to garden successfully in spite of this.

Julia enjoys traveling the world, meeting gardeners and experiencing their gardens with her husband, Eric
Hofley, owner and publisher of Michigan Gardener magazine. Sharing these experiences and inspiration with her audiences combines her interests in travel, gardening and history.
