Ernest’s Reflections

Ellen C. Wells

Back during the Cultivate’17 show in Columbus, Ohio, this past July, AmericanHort had invited renowned landscape architect and garden center designer and consultant Ernest Wertheim to share a few thoughts about his 75 years in this industry. Ernest’s passion for the industry surely is apparent. And imagine, he’s never missed an ANLA/AmericanHort meeting!

To help support the industry and one of its leading organizations, Ernest has graciously established the Jack Klemeyer Fund to honor his long-time business partner. And you are welcome to contribute to it! Just head over to to do so. Visit AmericanHort’s YouTube channel to watch Ernest’s video:

And Ernest, thank you for all you have done and continue to do for us. There will never be a mentor quite like you. GP
