Burpee Home Gardens Brand Manager, 2008-2010

Jessie Atchison was the brand manager of Burpee Home Gardens from 2008 to 2010. An avid gardener herself, Jessie started her first vegetable garden at age 8. Since then, through experimentation, practice, practical conversations with fellow gardeners and professional instruction, she has learned how to make gardens sweet, delicious and successful. As a busy 30-something juggling professional life and family, Jessie gardens to escape but also for taste, satisfaction, savings and fun (and, secretly, also to keep up with “the garden lady” down the block). She has tips, tricks and confidence-inspiring advice for vegetable gardeners at all levels. Her motto: Grow as a gardener. It’s okay to fail as long as you learn.
