Douglas Green is a full time garden writer and e-publisher who has worked all his life in the nursery industry both in Canada and the U.S. He ran his own specialist nursery for over twenty years and has grown or killed many thousands of plant varieties as he doesn't recognize garden zones as applying to him or his garden but merely nuisance guidelines. He also never met a plant he didn't like (well, maybe Aegopodium) or wanted to grow. He does refuse to install a garden on his sailboat and in the backseat of his sportscar but those are the only two exceptions he makes.

The author is a regular guest lecturer at Horticultural Societies and gardening seminars. His slide collection is available for promotional activities. Lectures in 2004 included Canada Blooms, Philadelphia Flower Show, shows at Long Island and Washington DC.
