garden gateHello! My name is Susan Mulvihill and I am passionate about gardening. I’ve been writing garden columns for the Sunday edition of The Spokesman-Review for many years and am the co-author of Northwest Gardener’s Handbook.

Since 2002, I’ve been a Spokane County (Wash.) Master Gardener and am a longtime member of the Association for Garden Communicators.

It is my belief that everyone should be able to grow a garden, and toward that end, I’ve dedicated this website, my columns and my life to teaching others how to do just that!

My main interests are growing vegetables and fruits organically, watching the birds that visit our garden, and pursuing both botanical and wildlife photography.

One of my favorite ways of reaching gardeners has been through my how-to videos on a wide variety of topics. You can find an index of them in my Videos section.

If there are topics you are interested in learning about, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at Susan@susansinthegarden.com.
