Abra Lee

I’m a self-proclaimed horticulturist extraordinaire that is half country bumpkin, half bougie, occasionally extra, and inherently Southern. The opportunities I’ve been fortunate to experience during my career in the garden industry have far surpassed my ancestors’ wildest dreams! And I’ve been taking notes on plants + pop culture.

Hire me to partner with your brand for television, speaking, writing, keynote, or whatever cool project we can create together. I am uniquely qualified to educate and inspire your audience.

How so? Glad you asked–here are just a few of my receipts:


-Auburn University College of Agriculture, Auburn, Alabama – B.S. Horticulture

-Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania – Leadership in Public Horticulture Fellowship
