Last Seminar-More Than Worth the Wait!

In every regard, Susie, your presentation was professional. For me, the high points included, but not necessarily in the following order: outstanding images, highly familiar & knowledgeable about plant material, appropriately placed/succinct titles, botanical & common names, and meaningful groups of plants. Your style of presentation was affable, well organized and welcoming. What more could a participant want?
Another Great Presentation!

I have seen Susie Egan's presentations on plants for the winter garden and native plants through the Redmond Garden Club meetings. Her talks have been wonderful! I was thrilled to be able to see Susie Egan's presentation at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show this past week on Spring Ephemerals as well. Susie has a terrific knack for clarifying her information in a way where the novice gardener can understand everything, while the advanced gardener is still immersed in fascinating new content. Her photos are a real feast for the eyes and her cheerful passion for plants is always contagious!
GREAT Talk on Spring Ephemerals!

Yesterday, I attended the talk given by Susie Egan, A Symphony of Spring Ephemerals - Woodland Gems to Bridge the Seasons, at the NW Garden Show in Seattle. I have been to several of her talks and have ALWAYS walked away with some new information/knowledge. Not only is was the talk packed with education, but the presentation was colorful and blended beautifully with this year’s Garden Show’s theme – A Floral Symphony.
I believe the reason her events always grab my interest (and other’s interest) is primarily due to her passion for woodland flowers; especially Trilliums. You can’t fake passion; it has to be at the core of any successful business. Well, Susie E. of Cottage Lake Gardens (Woodinville) has it and her passion filters into everything she does! Thus, she and her business thrive as do her woodland plants!

On 10/15/11 Ms. Egan gave a class to the Bellevue Master Gardner's group on Winter Plants.
As a retired medical manager who did public speaking I would rank her as first class. She was well organized, great slides and handouts, excellent eye contact and rapport with the audience and answered all our questions in the allotted 1.5 hours.
She's the best speaker I've heard there in the last 5 years.
Winter Gardens and Trillium

Susie Egan has presented two excellent talks to the Ballard Garden Club. The first was a delightful trip down the “Trillium Trail,” and thanks to Susie there are a lot more Trillium plants in Ballard today! This fall she gave the “Winter Color and Interest” talk, and at a time when we are all getting garden weary, Susie succeeded in instilling renewed enthusiasm for winter plantings. Susie presented a complete package: gorgeous photos, valuable hand-out, practical information presented in a clear voice, and plants for sale that were featured in the talk. One of our favorite speakers!
