Author Bio

Armitage, Allan :

Dr. Allan Armitage is one of the most influential figures in the plant world today, traveling internationally as a lecturer and consultant. His remarkable knowledge of things botanical is backed by a Bachelor of Science from MacDonald College, Quebec, a Master of Science from the University of Guelph, Ontario, and a Michigan State Ph.D.

A respected and prolific writer, Armitage has written over 250 articles and papers in journals such as Fine Gardening and Horticulture Monthly. He contributes a monthly column to Greenhouse Grower Magazine, a national trade journal, and is the author of six books. He is best known for his classroom and reference text, Herbaceous Perennial Plants: A Treatise on Their Identification, Culture, and Garden Attributes, now in its second edition. In 1997 it was designated by the American Horticulture Society as one of the seventy-five most important horticultural books of the past seventy-five years. In addition, his essential text for cut flower growers, Specialty Cut Flowers: The Production of Annuals, Perennials, Bulbs and Woody Plants for Fresh and Dried Cut Flowers is currently in revision. The expanded and revised second edition will be published in fall of 2003.

Charming and lively as well as knowledgeable, Dr. Armitage is in constant demand as a speaker. He has lectured in Canada, the United States, China, Colombia, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. Also an engaging teacher, his courses in greenhouse production and crop management and herbaceous plant identification fill rapidly. In fact, he was recognized as one of the best teachers in the nation when he received the distinguished National Educator Award from the American Horticultural Society.

Equipped with this impressive list of accomplishments, he continues to be active in research and management. His research has lead to the introduction of a half-dozen plants to the greenhouse and garden trade, including the best-selling Verbena 'Homestead Purple', and other advances in the floriculture industry. He is currently in charge of the University of Georgia Horticulture Gardens, which is supported and visited by growers and seed breeders around the world.

Armitage's belief in gardening fuels his remarkable and ambitious career. He sees working with plants as therapeutic, exciting and creative, and says that a gardener can always look forward to improving a garden.
