Matt Mattus

Truly a life-long plantsman, Matt was raised (and still lives on) his 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.
His popular blog GROWING WITH PLANTS has been featured in the pages of Martha Stewart Living, Better Homes & Gardens  and
Matt spends his free time traveling to plant-centric locations (next trip – Patagonia), always looking for inspiration, and of course, new content for his many ventures. He is currently President of  the North American Rock Garden Society, has spent time as editor of the American Primrose Society journal, and is an active board member on many plant societies and botanic gardens.

About Rochelle Greayer

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
