Brian Minter – B.C.’s very own garden guru – will be the next presenter for the Comox Valley Horticultural Society (CVHS) via Zoom on Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m.
Minter will be discussing what’s new in the world of plants. He will be focusing on new plant introductions and what is trending, such as the burgeoning popularity of home food gardens, sustainable gardening, environmental plantings and pollinating gardens.
Minter’s gardening knowledge comes from decades of hands-on experience, which has earned him many gardening and tourism awards, including the prestigious Orders of Canada, B.C. and Chilliwack. He is continually researching the latest industry developments and talking with gardeners both locally and internationally.
Minter has a BA from UBC, was recently inducted into the Gardening Writers Hall of Fame, and is a master gardener. He and his wife, Faye, have dedicated many years of gardening knowledge and have co-owned the Minter Country Garden in Chilliwack since 1972.
