Barbara Wise

Author, Container Gardening for All Seasons and blogger, bwisegardening.com

Barbara Peake Wise works for Crescent Gardens, a wholesale business specializing in high-end containers. Prior to that, she spent many years as the Director of Floriculture for Landscape Service, Inc, where her responsibilities included overseeing the design, installation, and maintenance of the seasonal flowers for over 350 properties. Barbara is a writer for Tennessee Gardener and has a monthly gardening column, “Garden Compositions”, in Nashville House, Home, and Garden magazine. This year her blog, bwisegardening.blogspot.com, featured a daily post of container planting ideas for every season. With the desire to “Cultivate a Culture of Gardening®”, Barbara’s passion for helping new gardeners succeed has resulted in her book, Container Gardening for All Seasons (Cool Springs Press, 2012). Barbara is a Master Gardener, is a member of OFA and GWA, and has learned in raising her four highly active sons that gardening was cheaper than therapy when it came to maintaining her sanity.
