Chip Tynan is manager of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Horticultural Answer Service, overseeing a staff of more than 40 volunteers who annually field some 28,000 questions from area gardeners. An old-time generalist in a field increasingly dominated by specialists, Chip manages to stay current in the many aspects of modern horticulture and is respected and admired for his unparalleled experience as a self-taught lifetime gardener. Well-known locally for the weekly gardening column he writes for The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Chip regularly teaches adult education courses at the Garden, gives many talks to gardening clubs, and is frequently called upon by local TV and radio stations to speak on a wide variety of gardening subjects.
