About Me

Welcome To My Site! 
My name is Brooke Kroeger and I am the writer of Creative Country Mom's WebGarden.

Here is a place for me to share a bit about gardening and anything else that I find interesting. I collect vintage roses and enjoy a cottage, grandma's-style, rambling mess of a garden...but I would not have it any other way!  I share country home ideas and tidbits about living off the beaten path.  I enjoy planting things from seed and have several unusual vintage perennials and annuals.  I also collect heirloom and reblooming irises and have over 25 varieties of old fashioned hollyhocks.  

We live on almost 7 acres in beautiful Southern Indiana on a 48 acre lake.  Our home and garden is going on 6 years old, built in 2006, so I am still expanding....and enjoying every minute of it.  I enjoy attending garden events and tours and frequently lecture about my "gardening secrets". I also enjoy collecting seeds and trading plants and participate in several local garden clubs.  I am also a test garden for Renee's Garden Seed and a member of the All American Selections.  In January 2012 I was nominated as the National Garden of the Month by Costa Farms, the worlds largest nursery grower. I've been featured on several gardening sites including The Knockout Family of Roses, Jackson and Perkins, Proven Winners and numerous gardening blogs.  In 2012 I was one of six garden bloggers to be on the Lowe's Creative Ideas Garden Bloggers.  Also in April of 2012 I was featured by Fine Gardening Magazine.  I am also a contributor to #gardenchat and #rosechat on Twitter.  I regularly do guest commentary on garden radio shows as well.

I love to grow new things, so if you are a breeder or garden supply company, email me, I frequently test trial plants in my garden.  Thanks for stopping by, come back soon and Happy Gardening!
