Matt Mattus: Autumn and Winter Blooming Bulbs for the cold greenhouse or conservatory

Date: 7pm-8pm, Sep 9, 2020

This will be a ZOOM meeting or at Van Dusen Floral Hall

Matt Mattus has been involved with horticulture throughout his career, which began as a kid aged 9 years old who wandered into Horticultural Hall after a weekly piano lesson in the city and who decided that he too could grow marigolds and exhibit them! By age 10 he was exhibiting as a 'junior exhibitor' in the many plant society shows held at Worcester County Horticultural Society's Horticultural Hall in Worcester, MA throughout the 1970’s.

 He speaks frequently about his passions at botanic gardens and plant societies which includes a wide range of topics ranging from South African Bulbs to nineteenth century conservatory plants to high-elevation alpines.

As the author of the award winning gardening blog GROWING WITH PLANTS.com, Matt often features many of his travels and in-depth horticultural projects ranging from English Sweet Pea culture to growing and training exhibition Chrysanthemums. His Greenhouse and gardens have also been included in many popular magazines blogs and books including Martha Stewart Living (Nov. 2016 – Chrysanthemums), House & Garden (Nov 2016, South African Bulbs), and Better Homes & Gardens to name a few.

Matt and his partner Joe live in Worcester, MA, with three lovable Irish Terriers, many chickens, Indian Runner Ducks and Tom the turkey.
