Mark Disero

Langford Rose Gardens

In the summer of 2008, Mark created and was the Show Chair of The First All-Canadian Rose Show held at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton & Burlington. The show, which featured the rich history of Canadian rose hybridizing, was a great success garnering national publicity both on radio and in print. As a result Mark was listed as one of three Horticultural Heroes of 2008 by Gardening Life Magazine.

Following this success Mark started gardenwriters.ca as a way of networking the horticultural media in Canada. This online presence has influenced his own garden writing for his blog, gardentoronto.ca. Identifying the trend toward more visual content Mark started specializing in photographic and then video work.

To date his video work has appeared on the webpages of The Toronto Star, Garden Making Magazine, Canada Blooms, Landscape Ontario, Toronto Botanical Garden, and various landscape companies. Mark's video footage has also been featured in commercials for Canada Blooms airing on CTV.

His published videos may be found on www.youtube.com/MarkDisero.

Today Mark lives on his 67 acre farm, Langford Rose Gardens, in Brant County, just west of Ancaster, Ontario, where he hybridizes and trials Canadian roses for the landscape industry.
