Scott Beuerlein

Over twelve or fifteen years, Scott Beuerlein has published over 150 articles for several publications and online. In addition to a monthly blog and usually an open letter to fellow Ranter, Marianne Wilburn, here on Garden Rant, Scott writes the (hopefully) humorous Deep Roots column and also the Green Scene interview column for every issue of Horticulture Magazine. In 2019, Scott won two Gold Medals from Garden Communicators International, and, in 2020, he won a Silver Medal. None of this has made him rich.

Scott’s day job is Manager of Botanical Garden Outreach at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Scott is Chair of the Boone County Arboretum Collections Committee, past Chair of Taking Root, past President of the Cincinnati Flower Growers Association, and Past President of the Northern Kentucky Urban and Community Forestry Council. None of this has made him rich, either.

Scott has been married to Michele now for 36 years, a woman way above his pay grade. It took him far too long to realize that, but he does now. Scott and Michele are empty nesters living a pretty good life based on hard work, good food, and wine. Lots of wine. The garden is best described as over-sized and under-maintained, which, actually, is also a pretty fair description of Scott.

Scott graduated with a BA in Communication Arts from Xavier University. As a self taught, late to the party, second career horticulturist, Scott is proud of being an ONLA Certified Landscape Technician and an ISA Certified Arborist, and has defeated the efforts of both organizations to expel him from their ranks in court.

Déjà vu all over again. In what is apparently becoming an abusive relationship, I again find myself the victim of Marianne Willburn’s poison pen, which, I now believe she nightly [...]
