 Jerry Baker Biography

Back in his younger days, Jerry was an undercover cop in Detroit, Michigan, posing as a gardener, tree trimmer, landscaper, and seed salesman. While recovering from a job-related injury, he decided to turn to the more tranquil pursuit of gardening. Through a lot of hard work in the “School of Hard Knocks,” he eventually became America’s #1 expert on lawn, garden, and plant care.

Jerry’s folksy humor, practical know-how, and homespun philosophy are in part derived from his Grandma Putnam, an American Indian who first taught him to talk to plants. Jerry lived with her for several of his most formative years, and it was she who showed him many of the tips, tricks, and tonics for common plant ailments and gardening problems that he now uses. With a time-worn almanac in one hand and a dog-eared Bible in the other, Grandma Putt instilled in him a deep respect for Mother Nature, Mother Earth, and all things green and growing.

Since his days with Grandma Putt, Jerry has been on a mission to spread her gardening gospel, along with the thousands of gardening tips, home remedies, and amazing cures he’s picked up along the way.

Jerry first gained a measure of fame and notoriety with the publication of his runaway bestseller, Plants Are Like People, in 1972. He was also the guy who started the national craze of talking to your plants with the publication of a book by the same title. Since then, Jerry has written more than 50 books, and more than twenty million copies of his books have been sold, including his most recent bestsellers, Supermarket Super Products!, The Anti-Pain Plan and Year 'Round Bloomers.

Soon after Jerry hit the bestsellers list, television came a callin’, and he was appearing on many of the most popular TV talk shows. Millions of viewers know Jerry from his frequent guest appearances on such shows as “Dinah’s Place”, “The Tonight Show,” “The Merv Griffin Show,” “PM Magazine,” “The Today Show,” and “Good Morning America.”

Currently, he has his own gardening specials that air on Public Television Stations across the country. These shows feature Jerry’s timely tips, tricks, and tonics on such topics as lawn, flower, tree, shrub, and evergreen care. They have been very successful, and are among the most popular programs on PBS.

Throughout his career, Jerry has also been a frequent guest on various radio programs. Jerry has always been fascinated by the radio business and always thought his own radio show would be a great way to regularly visit with all of his fans. In 1987, he started his own national call-in talk show, “On The Garden Line.” It’s currently in its sixteenth year, and still alive and kickin’! It’s carried by 150 stations across the country every Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. EST on the Westwood One Network.

Also in 1987, with the help of his son, Jeff, and son-in-law, Kim Gasior, Jerry launched the Home, Health, and Garden Line® newsletter. It’s published six times a year, and features a mix of timely tonics, household hints, and super shortcuts that are guaranteed to make your home and garden the envy of the neighborhood. From rather humble beginnings, it has grown into what Jerry calls America’s How-To Newsletter™ - read by more than 100,000 loyal readers each and every month!

More recently, they put together a new catalog which features all of Jerry’s private label products from fertilizers to weed killers, Thatch Buster™ to Plant Shampoo™. It also carries a ton of household helpers, outdoor accessories, and quality tools and equipment.
