About me

Horticulturist, both self-trained and formally educated at the New York Botanical Garden. Became interested in garden writing with my first professional assignment for Brooklyn Botanic Garden's handbook on climate concious gardening (http://www.bbg.org/gardening/handbook/climate_conscious/)


Current project

Removing all the plants that I don't think work - e.g. roses, lonicera - and replacing them with native/disease resistant/hummingbird attracting versions.


Type of gardener

Container; Testing the cold limits of tropicals; For wildlife; Growing interest in natives


Favorite garden activity
