Horticulturist who loves to travel.

Background Information

Expertise on landscape plants and allergies. I'm a rose breeder, energetic-fun speaker, writer, lizard collecting nut, birder, a rock hound, and I love to read, study, laugh, sing, and fish. I've got an MS degree in Agriculture/Horticulture and did all my graduate work on pollen, plant flowering systems and allergies. I collect cultivars of pollen-free plants, grasses, shrubs, vines, trees.
I give talks and do consulting work on the interactions between landscaping and human health.   


I'm open to any awards anyone would like to give me! An exhibit based on my work did win the Silver Medal at the fabulous Chelsea Flower and Garden Show in London.

Additional Information

I'm the author of six published books; I'm best known for Allergy-Free Gardening, from Ten Speed Press, July 2000...and also for, Safe Sex in the Garden, also from Ten Speed Press. My newest book, from Ten Speed and Random House, is The Allergy Fighting Garden...due in stores 1/17/15. I do consulting for the American Lung Association, the USDA, the California Department of Health, for some nursery and landscape associations, for individuals and for allergists. I also answer my own e-mails!
