I have spoken at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum,
the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, home and garden shows
in the Twin Cities, and at local and statewide garden clubs and
horticultural societies. I have appeared on local television
promoting the joy of water gardening. Each year we welcome tours
to our gardens which include not only my water gardens but my
husband's hosta gardens.
In the mid 1980s, I started selling hardy waterlilies including
the smaller varieties appropriate for container water gardens.
I also grow some hardy marginal plants for sale.
I'm a member of Water Gardeners International, the International
Waterlily and Water Garden Society, the Minnesota Water Garden
Society, the Minnesota Hosta.Society and my local garden club,
the Eagan Garden Club.
