Drought Tolerant Plants
October 16th with Anna Mizyn.
Anna is originally from Poland, and came to Canada in 1989. In Poland she spent 2 years at Horticultural College, and worked at the local Farmers Co-op. In her spare time she worked in local orchards, and grew and sold some of her own plants.
After moving to her “cottage” from the Toronto area with her new husband in 1994, her gardens were growing, and after two years, she started selling a few plants and seedlings out of that location .. thus Anna’s Perennials was started.
Anna’s European background, and formal schooling at College gives her a different perspective towards her style of planting, and incorporating many of the plants that are not popular here, but are in other parts of the world.
Anna is a mad gardener as she is always looking for a new plant, collecting seeds and trying to grow plants that others say aren’t possible in our area.
Since 2003 Anna’s Perennials has been a vendor at the Peterborough “For the Love of Gardening” show.
For several years, Anna has been giving talks/demonstrations to various horticultural groups in the area on many different topics, such as ‘winter hardy cactus and other succulents,’ ‘perennial grasses’, my favorite plants’ .
