Hi, I'm Natalie and I am The Gardenist!


I have always had a deep appreciation for the beauty and details of the natural world and enjoyed getting my hands dirty in nature. My educational background is in Botany, environmental and soil science. I specialize in soil and water management, cellular botany, greenhouse management, floral/landscape design and arboriculture.



Every floral creation has my personal touch and I like to use flowers from my own gardens! I often forage in wildflower fields and the woods to find unique and native additions for each arrangement. I source locally and use what is in season as much as possible. By doing this I am utilizing what true nature has to offer and contributing to sustainable floriculture.
