1) When did you first start gardening?
I first started gardening in college, although I spent my childhood playing in the dirt outside in Miami, Florida, climbing trees, eating loquats from my neighbor’s tree and enjoying mango, citrus and avocado around the neighborhood.
2) What is your favorite plant in the garden?
Magnolia macrophylla, the big leaf magnolia. It looks great in every season, whether it’s covered in buds, leaves, huge fragrant flowers or fruits!
3) What is your proudest gardening moment?
When I germinated seeds of Skimmia reevsiana, the first plant I ever grew from seed.
4) What tool could you not live without in your garden?
5) What inspires you the most?
Seeing plants in their native habitats and then trying similar combinations in my own garden. I am also drawn to fragrant plants and plants that have big leaves or flowers — tall herbaceous plants like Joe-Pye weed, Silphium perfoliatum (which can grow up to 10' tall) and tall perennials in general.
