City Name

Mike Lansing

Mike has been a self-confessed plant head since he accidentally started growing vegetables in his garden in his twenties. After over 10 years in a corporate job that had nothing to do with gardening, he resigned and obtained a Certificate in Garden Design from George Brown College.    He then set up a small business growing and selling indoor plants, which he enjoys running with his wife and two kids.   To this day, he enjoys geeking out over random plant facts and researching better ways to maintain his garden – and this is why it’s a no-brainer that he’s currently our managing editor.
