Jim Hole lives in Edmonton, Alberta and works nearby at his family’s greenhouse and garden centre in St. Albert, where he divides his time between writing about what he does and doing what he writes about.
Explaining what makes plants tick is Jim’s specialty, and he does it without ever losing sight of the beauty and wonder that make gardening enjoyable. In addition to writing bestselling books, weekly newspaper columns and a twice-yearly magazine, Enjoy Gardening, Jim can be heard regularly on CBC radio and seen weekly on City TV’s Breakfast Television.
Jim is Alberta’s most articulate horticulturist – and one of the most knowledgeable. He is ardent about plants, conservation, the environment and business. His passion inspires audience members to “get down and dirty” and to regenerate their lives through gardening. His humour and his engaging spirit are legendary. He is a popular speaker.
Jim’s current challenge is the relocation of Hole’s Greenhouses to a new state-of-the-art facility next to Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park. The Enjoy Centre is an internationally recognized award-winning community of partners: a spa, a restaurant, a bakery, a garden centre and a convention space—everything you need to create a lifestyle about you.
Jim is also the Past-President of the University of Alberta Alumni Association.
