Andy Johnson

Merrifield Plant and Wildlife Specialist

As a naturalist Andy believes that gardening “is not just plants, it’s an ecosystem.” He shares his interest in the relationship between plants and animals with others when working in our trees and shrubs sections at our Gainesville location.

A gardener since the age of three, Andy first discovered his passion for bright blooms and wildlife while helping his mother in their home garden. If you ask his coworkers and friends, they all describe Andy as a fun-loving, playful outdoorsman. In his free time, Andy enjoys the great outdoors, hiking and fishing with his family.
