We’re Rich! Exploring the Many Nurseries of the Pacific Northwest – Loree Bohl

A lifelong resident of the Pacific NW, Loree and her husband Andrew moved to Portland from Spokane in 2004. After purchasing their home in 2005 she got to work designing and planting the garden and quickly fell in love with the vibrant horticulture community in Oregon.

In 2009 Loree began writing her blog,—her love for agaves, cactus and all things spiky was the inspiration for the blog name. Loree publishes to the blog 5 times a week, Monday—Friday, sharing stories and photos from her own garden, her travels to other private and public gardens, and visits to nurseries.

Loree serves on the board of directors for the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon, the Pacific Horticulture Society, and has written for the Oregon Association of Nurseries magazine, Digger. She practices the fine art of garden cramscaping and is a firm believer there is always room for one more plant.

Clackamas County Master Gardeners are the folks who put on the annual Spring Garden Fair, bringing together over 7,000 gardeners with over 140 plant and garden-art vendors.
