Joseph Tychonievich

Joseph Tychonievich studied horticulture, plant breeding, and genetics at the Ohio State University and was the nursery manager at Arrowhead Alpines, a premier rock garden nursery in Fowlerville, Michigan. He spent a summer working at Shibamichi Honten Nursery in Japan and has been a repeat guest on public radio's food show The Splendid Table.

Starting from tthe age of five when he asked his parents for seeds for his birthday, Joseph has had a deep and abiding obsession with just about everything photosynthetic, from the vegetable garden to the rock garden. Organic Gardening Magazine called him one of “six young horticulturalists who are helping to shape how America gardens.”
