Originally from Kentucky, Jack has first hand experience gardening in both temperate and subtropical climates. Hi is building Floridata into a business fulfilling his vision of an online plant and nature reference and marketplace. Having survived for ten tumultuous years on the web, as larger sites have come and gone, his obsessive passion for Floridata continues.
