Lyndon Penner has been gardening since the age of three and has never forgotten the thrill of growing his first flowers from seed. Few people match the enthusiasm for gardening that Lyndon has! With a passion for rare & unusual plants as well as a desire to see the world, Lyndon has had the privilege of gardening on three continents. Starting in the greenhouse industry at the age of 16, he has become increasingly involved with prairie horticulture and has become well known as a garden speaker and writer for the University of Saskatchewan, CBC Radio, The Calgary Zoo Botanical Garden, and the Gardener for the Prairies magazine. Lyndon makes his home in Calgary and maintains winter sanity with a grow light the size of a small truck.
