About the Expert

"I still get excited when I discover the beauties of our woodland areas, such as American Chestnut, Tuliptree and Flowering Dogwood."

Bruce Scott has worked in the horticulture field for over 40 years.  One of his greatest endeavours began in 1991 when he was granted the opportunity to take charge of the newly renovated Gardens surrounding the Casa Loma Mansion. It was a dream job for Bruce. He thrived giving tours to visitors who came to see the immaculate gardens, while tending to the antique roses, spring wildflowers and perennial borders became his favourite past-time. 

After almost thirty years of looking after the Casa Loma oasis in the city, he moved to Norfolk County with his wife to retire.
