Elisabeth Neumann is GardenSavvy. Elisabeth is a trained art historian with a background in the sciences. She began gardening in containers on her balcony in Berlin in the 1980s, and has also lived in Amsterdam and spent time studying in other European cities. She now makes her home in Toronto’s Little Italy, where she rises to the challenge of a tiny backyard with part shade and a front yard parched by the greedy roots of a¬†softwood Norway maple.
