This is Brian. Hi, Brian!
Brian is the Curator at The Ruth Bancroft Garden and the source of most of our Tumblr posts (certainly all the informative ones). He also created that aloe hybrid he’s kneeling next to: Aloe humilis x ferox. Brian does stuff like that. The hybridizing, not the kneeling I mean.
We’ve gotten a lot of new followers since we were featured as a trending blog (thanks, whoever did that!), so I thought I should take a moment to introduce all you new folks to the man behind the posts.
Brian has worked at this garden since 1980. He’s learned a lot about succulents over the years, and he’s very generous about sharing his knowledge. He teaches our annual docent training, give public lectures, and writes several plant articles per month for our website and the local newspaper. If you have a question about succulents, you should email Brian instead of commenting on our post.
In conclusion, welcome to all the new folks! I hope you like our plants.
