Featuring: Adam Pyle, Horticulturalist, U.S. Botanic Garden


Adam Pyle grew up in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, spending time with grandparents who were avid gardeners. From a young age he was always obsessed with plants and knew t
hat he wanted to work with them as a career. Later, at the University of Maryland, Adam intended to major in landscape architecture, but found himself drawn to horticultu
re and botany, and graduated in 2007 with a degree in Natural Resources and Plant Sciences. He soon joined the staff at United States Botanic Garden, where for five years 
he worked as the lead gardener of Bartholdi Park, experimenting with new gardening techniques for the Mid-Atlantic region. He now works as a professional horticulturist there and spends much of his time planning and designing exhibits, displays, and programs for the visiting public. Adam particularly enjoys sharing his Washington gardening experiences in the hopes that others can learn from his successes and failures.
