Author Biography

Lauren Springer Ogden and Rob Proctor are authors, photographers, lecturers, garden designers, and above all, passionate gardeners. Their writings have appeared in many national publications. For eight years, they collaborated on an award-winning gardening column for the Denver Post. Rob is the author of ten books, including Naturalizing Bulbs and Herbs in the Garden: The Art of Intermingling. He and his garden frequently appear on the Discovery Channel. An accomplished artist, he taught for eight years at Denver Botanic Gardens' School of Botanical Illustration, and his works hang in the Smithsonian. He is director of horticulture at Denver Botanic Gardens. He tends his own one-acre garden without benefit of staff. Lauren gardened professionally on both sides of the Atlantic before receiving her master's degree in horticulture. She designs gardens for the public; her private gardens have been featured on television and in numerous publications. The American Horticultural Society named her book The Undaunted Garden one of the 75 best American gardening books of the recent century. In the foothills of Colorado, she divides her time between an untold number of plants, four dogs, two horses, ten cats, three children, and one husband.
