Plant Highlights from My Travels Around the World and Can We Grow Them?

Anna Leggatt
Anna Leggatt, one of our esteemed members and a world traveller, knows and loves plants. In this presentation she will treat us to a selection of plants from around the world that have become her favourites.


Anna Leggatt

Anna has a BSc. in Botany from London University, a Diploma in Nature Interpretation from Humber College and a Diploma in Horticulture from Guelph. She is currently employed as a part time Nature Interpreter at the Kortright Centre for Conservation. Anna teaches occasionally at the Toronto Botanical Garden covering topics such as general gardening and more specialized courses such as Water and Rock gardening. Anna offers lectures to Horticultural Societies and writes for several magazines on topics which include her travels abroad, and subjects that reflect her vast interest and passion for gardening. Anna is a past chair of the Ontario Rock Garden Society, former editor of the ORGS newsletter, past Director of North American Rock Garden Society and much, much more. She is basically a mad gardener, gardening in a comparatively large garden in Toronto with lots of shade and mink, deer, rabbits, and groundhogs. Anna loves shrubs, bulbs, rock gardening, wildflowers, Japanese effects, working with stone and changing her garden design. She says she wants to grow vegetables. However, the deer and groundhog would like them as well.
