About Dino Bernardi

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I would read about plants and started gardening and managing a large garden in my teen years planting and growing a variety of plants, flowers and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning and seeing new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
