by Ray AllenLots of members have asked. And the answer is Vermont artist Rob Towne. Rob was on our staff as VP Horticulture for almost 20 years, and our "Seeds from Santa" is only one of his many artistic contributions to our products. He also did the exquisite botanical art on all our collection packets. Rob is a true wildflower expert, and many of our members remember his knowledge and cheerful help. But he is first and foremost an artist. We miss Rob these days at the office, but he's now doing what he loves best: painting full time.
