An environmental activist and lifelong gardener, Jerry Palmer, was born and raised in Mississippi before moving to Texas after college, where he grew up in many ways. Learning about landscaping, arboriculture and environmental activism in the Dallas and Fort Worth area taught him the skills he uses today as an estate gardener and owner of Lycoris Rose, a southern heirloom bulb farm.
