About The Presenters
Hilary Cox "First and foremost I am a gardener - from England. Gardening led me to horticulture, which led to my establishing a garden design business. In my moves from the UK to Delaware and Indiana - I had become aware how native plants worked so much better than non-native, which led to my interest in botany and entomology, which duly inspired my designs. My gardens were often on national garden tours. I gave classes on gardening at IUPUI and I wrote for multiple gardening magazines and journals, plus I appeared on TV - teaching about gardening! More recently I learned about desert plants when working with Chuck LeFevre at the Kannally Ranch House gardens at Oracle State Park."
