Oakville Horticultural Society
John Lonsdale was born in in Sheffield, England, and has grown a wide variety of alpine and woodland plants and bulbs for more than 30 years. Prior to moving to the US in 1995, John was an active member of the Alpine Garden Society, specializing in growing members of the Primulaceae, particularly dionysia, primula and androsace, and saxifraga. He also grew many smaller hardy bulbs, including cyclamen. John was awarded the Alpine Garden Society Gold Merit Medal in 1995.
John and his family live and garden in Exton, Pennsylvania, in a climate which has proved to be wonderful for growing hardy plants and bulbs. Extensive plantings of woodlanders include trillium, hellebore, cypripedium, hepatica and epimedium. Cyclamen, crocus, iris, corydalis, narcissus, fritillaria and erythronium species are also featured. John is particularly interested in pushing the limits of cultivation of many of these plants, and has extensive experience propagating them from seed, cuttings and by division.
John has been an active member of a number of horticultural groups, including the Daphne Society, Alpine Garden Society, Cyclamen Society, North American Rock Garden Society, Scottish Rock Garden Club, AGS Fritillaria Group, The Crocus Group, Aril Society International and the Species Iris Group of North America.
