About the Author

At age 90, Bob is a retired retail nurseryman. Up until 1998 he owned and operated Tanem's Garden Centers in Belvedere and San Rafael/ Santa Venetia. He bought Santa Venetia Nursery in 1961 on a whim and with no experience of the nursery business, except the teachings and love for Gardening that his grandmother and grandfather instilled in him.
