In 2011, Terry received his Bachelor’s of Science in Plant Biology from the University of Washington. Searching for a life botanic, he drifts from garden to garden and tires to garden wherever he has settled for the time being. However, his first and steadfast love is the garden at his childhood home near Seattle.
In September 2013, Terry started his grandest planty adventure yet: working in the gardens of the UK! Thanks to the Garden Club of America (GCA) and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), Terry was chosen to receive the golden ticket as the 2013-14 RHS/GCA Interchange Fellow (aka Martin McLaren Scholar). This gave him the great opportunity to work at RHS Garden Wisley, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Winfield House (US Ambassador’s London Residence), the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, RHS Garden Rosemoor, Eden Project, and Tresco Abbey. Extending his European debut, Terry interned at Jardin de La Mouissone in Grasse, France experiencing the joys and challenges of gardening in a new climate: the Mediterranean.
Now he is back in Seattle taking on his next botanical chapter.
