Jamie McIntosh lives on a suburban plot in the Midwest, where she grows plants that don’t mind temperatures that vacillate between -10 degrees and 110 degrees. She grew her first flowering plant, a hybrid tea rose, in 1996. She soon discovered the pleasure and pride of growing all sorts of flowers for arrangements, and before long every patch of lawn looked like the site of her next flowerbed.
