    The indoor plant workshop was very popular, informative and appreciated by everyone who attended. Markus spoke about a variety of plants and related scenarios and was great at taking questions from the audience. Many attendees purchased plants afterwards which is a testament to their knowledge gained from the workshop. A good result for all!

      Markus hosted a plant workshop earlier this month in our Goolwa Library. His welcoming and friendly attitude (coupled with some great theatrics) made our guests immediately warm to him. The Designer Botanist shared his love for plants, combined with his knowledge of interior design as we were guided through his philosophy that indoor plants provide the perfect space to live in – a calming sanctuary. Markus was professional, polite and prompt to deal with, bookings were steady, and the event was a fully booked, fun filled Saturday afternoon. Feedback has been really very good from our diverse audience. Thank you and congratulations

            If you are looking for a very knowledgeable, approachable and personable presenter, Markus is perfect. Unley Libraries hosted a ‘sold out’ indoor plant talk at Unley Town Hall in November 2020 to an audience of plant enthusiasts. Markus is very professional, organised and a dream to work with. We have had Markus back a number of times now with a variety of his workshops. Each of them different but always highly engaging and informative in nature. He is highly recommended.
