My Name Is Lowell Halvorson

I specialize in the demand side of horticulture. Why do people buy this plant, but not that plant? A lot of answers tumble out, depending on who buys and why.

For businesses, I build focused messages, based on a plan, and deliver them to interested parties. To build awareness, I use a toolset of data analysis, photos, design, and writing.

Vincas are more like southern tornadoes than hurricanes

My Toolbox of Skills

When I take on a client, I learn their business and market well, bringing my technical, creative, and horticultural skills to each project. You’ll find that I:

  • Read spreadsheets like newspapers.
  • Photograph to illustrate the points.
  • Write with a snappy style and clear focus.
  • Grow what I cover—my photo garden is zone 7.
