An early curiosity about fruits and flowers in his native Philippines developed into award-winning garden/floral displays and recognition in the Pacific Northwest gardening scene at an early age.
Riz Reyes immersed himself in the remarkable diversity of plants that thrived in the maritime region and finds every opportunity to seek out and work with the most uncommon selections in the trade and generously shares his knowledge and experience with others.
He earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Environmental Horticulture and Urban Forestry from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
His own enterprise, RHR Horticulture, focuses on garden education/consulting and floral design. Riz published his first children’s non-fiction book in March 2022 titled “Grow: A family guide to plants and how to grow them”.
Riz is currently the Assistant Director of Heronswood Garden in Kingston, WA
