Matt Mattus

Most people consider gardening just a hobby, but Matt sees little difference between his obsession with plants, biology and with design. Truly a life-long plantsman, Matt was raised (and still lives on) his ancestors’ family property in Massachusetts where three generations of gardeners have lived, and grown. Today, he has added his thumbprint with a large glass greenhouse, an alpine garden and interesting collections of plants. He is past president of the North American Rock Garden Society, and has spent time as editor of the American Primrose Society journal. He has most recently published a beautiful volume called "Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening:Rare Varieties - Unusual Options - Plant Lore and Guidance.
