Get an early peek at Bobby Ward's upcoming book, "The Plant Hunters Garden: The New Explorers and Their Discoveries." Bobby Ward will share with you not only who some of the modern day plant explorers are, but even better, their favorite plants from throughout their years of collecting. He has traveled to Chile, Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico, South Africa, the Czech Republic, and the United States to interview these modern day explorers and to see where they do their collecting. Bobby Ward has a degree in plant physiology, received his Ph.D. in botany from NC State University, and is a retired environmental scientist and a past-president of the North American Rock Garden Society.
