Perennials for the Passionate Gardener by Susan Brammeier, Southwoods Buyer

“My love of gardening started as a child helping my father grow vegetables on a 2 acre plot in our backyard in St. Louis Missouri. A keen interest in everything in the plant world led me to a degree in Botany from Florida International University. When my husband’s job brought our family to Tulsa, I started working for Southwood Landscape & Garden Center, where I have been for 21 years. Many of my duties included managing the perennial and annual departments, starting and maintaining a container gardening department, organizing events, and most recently becoming a buyer and production planner.

Along the way I was able to both attend school, studying Public Horticulture at OSU, and teach Horticulture at Tulsa Community College”.

Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month (except for December) at 7:00 pm at the Tulsa Garden Center.
