Pat Riley

Merrifield Plant Specialist

Pat’s love for gardening grew from a simple desire to have home-grown tomatoes. For Pat, “education equals validity.” She loves learning and sharing her knowledge with others to make them successful and happy gardeners.

Pat has been a Master Gardener since 1995 and has served as the Master Gardener Coordinator for Prince William County. She’s also received wetlands training from the EPA and is a Certified Nutrient Planner. At Merrifield Pat shares her passion for learning with coworkers and customers in our trees and shrubs sections at our Gainesville location.
