Title: All Seasons Interest In The Garden - Nancy Moore
There are many ways to have an interesting garden throughout the entire year. Floral colour is usually our first thought, but plant foliage, texture, bark and form can also be delightful. When you combine those features with creative, thoughtful and well-placed hardscaping, then you have a garden for all seasons.
“I’ve had a life-long love of plants and gardening, and have been extremely fortunate to be able to spend my working life doing what I enjoy. Since graduating in landscape design/horticulture, I have, among other things, been the horticulturist for a parks department, manager of a shade tree nursery, instructor in landscape design and horticulture at the University of the Fraser Valley, and owner/operator of a landscape design/consulting business. I have enjoyed donating my time and expertise to benefit many community projects, including the Abbotsford Community Garden and the Sylvia Pincott Heritage/Habitat Garden. Post retirement, I still enjoy puttering in my garden, teaching the Master Gardeners at Van Dusen, giving gardening talks, and being involved with several Fraser Valley garden clubs and societies.” Nancy Moore
