Cavano’s Perennials, Inc. in Kingsville, MD, has announced that David Culp will be joining the team as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Culp brings a diverse background in all thing’s chlorophyll, including serving as Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Sunny Border Nurseries in Connecticut, perennial buyer at Waterloo Gardens in Pennsylvania, independent plant breeder, and instructor at Longwood Gardens. He is also an award winning author, and founder of the Galanthus Gala, just to name a few.
Along with his partner, Michael Alderfer, Culp created the gardens at Brandywine Cottage in Downingtown, PA (also the home to his breeding program). He also developed the Brandywine Hybrid strain of hellebore. While David has been traveling the nation lecturing about plants and gardening for more than 25 years, he is most recently recognized for his webinars with Garden Design.
Culp’s involvement with green industry organizations is widespread as well, including the Perennial Plant Association, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Hardy Plant Society, GardenComm, and many of the public gardens within the Mid-Atlantic Region. Whether writing about gardening or designing gardens, his desire to make the world a greener place is evident.
A plantsman and hands-on gardener, Culp is keen on helping garden centers and landscape designers extend and expand their season with unique and interesting plant offerings.
Be sure to stop by the Cavano’s Perennials booth at MANTS in January to welcome Culp to his new role.
