Ken worked as the Superintendent of Horticulture at the Toronto Zoo when it
was being planned and built, where he was responsible for the planning and

landscaping contractors. He owned and operated “The Plant Manager” an
interior landscaping company for 20 years where he built and maintained a
wide variety of public and private interior gardens. He also has a horticulture
teaching degree from the University of Toronto and has taught a variety of
related courses. Ken is a certified horticultural judge and he is a frequent

www.gardening-enjoyed.com, his web page, is a great source of advice, tips
and updates. His own gardens feature his Iris collection and a wide range of
plants that he is trialing. In a space of their own and interspersed throughout
all his gardens, Ken grows a comprehensive list of vegetables in some
innovative ways to maximize the use of space. He currently spends most of
his non-gardening hours writing for his web site, www.gardeningenjoyed.
