Duane Otto is a landscape gardener at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and has been for over 24 years. He selects a new color theme and style for the spring and summer annual displays each year. This includes selecting 32,000 tulips and 7000 pansies for the spring and well over 25,000 annuals for the summer. Duane designs nearly all the container and moss basket combinations and many of the perennial displays. He and seasonal crew and volunteers maintain the many ter- race gardens surrounding the Visitor Center and Snyder Building. In November Duane and his gardener assistant and volunteers enhance the winter landscape by filling most existing containers and moss baskets with evergreen boughs, branches, berried branches and other natural materials.
Duane also does horticultural speaking, garden consultation, perennial garden design and installation. He sells perennials, dried florals, spring branches, evergreen boughs and winter containers at local farmers markets and consignment stores.
