Message from Karl!
Since you're here...
you must share a passion for horticulture, like me! My
driving interest for plants has continued since I was in grade
school and has intensified ever since as I explore even more
varieties and species worldwide! The plant kingdom is a
never-ending area of exploration. Enjoy the site! (some areas
are not quite complete!).
Karl Gercens’ passion for horticulture started at an early
age while growing-up on a 10,000 acre cotton plantation in
Mississippi. The warm Mississippi climate and long growing
season helped to nurture his fondness for plants and his
appreciation for the wonders of natural beauty.
professional resume includes hands-on skills from world class
organizations such as Longwood Gardens [Kennett Square, PA], The Filoli
Estate [Woodside, CA], and Walt Disney World [Orlando, FL]. His years of
horticultural tenure include
innovative design-work combined with time-honored approaches for
serious gardening! For more complete information about Karl's
professional background, please visit the contact Karl section
of this web-site.
Karl’s notoriety for using a pallet of colored foliage
trees, shrubs, and perennials continues to funnel the exciting
content of his professional lectures given nationwide and his
horticultural classes offered locally.
