Christina Salwitz, known as "the Personal Garden Coach,” is not only a horticultural guidance counselor, she is a "hort-head" of the first order, a writer of plant passions and a container gardening fashionista! She focuses on saving labor, time and money in gardening—and above all having fun. As a Seattle-based horticulturist, speaker, garden writer and author, Salwitz has spent more than 20 years working with the public in numerous gardening capacities. In addition to writing for traditional garden media publications such as Better Homes and Gardens (Cover, March 2014), Fine Gardening and Garden Design, she also writes for industry publications for the horticulture trade and continues to act as a resource to garden authors and columnists across the country. Her own home garden and those of her clients are frequently featured in her blog personalgardencoach.wordpress.com and she is a proud founding member of The Garden Designer's Roundtable. As co-author of "Fine Foliage," Salwitz has become a nationally recognized authority on designing with foliage, designing with containers and garden trends.
