Description
Kelly’s love for native plants is almost as primal as his urge to garden. Early life influences have translated into a feverish obsession for plant exploration and collection and Kelly’s unwavering commitment to introduce and promote the native plants that our industry continues to look past. Beyond the plants themselves, understanding their functional roles in wild environments can lead to profound insights in how to adapt them to gardens. Take up the explorer’s hat in this travelogue that fuses horticulture and ecology into ideas and practices you can plant at home.
