"Renowned for having killed more geophytes in his garden than anyone else in PBS. Perhaps the problem is that he lives on the wrong coast, near Boston in a marginal Zone 6, with winter temps rarely below 0 °F, unreliable snow cover, and reliable ice. He does have a cool greenhouse, however, that contains a mix of bulbs, succulents, and other random plants. He is fortunate to be married to a native South African, and gets to go there every couple of years to visit relatives and do some botanizing. He hopes to retire someday and spend more time in his neglected garden."
