Cynthia Koogler, Lead horticulturalist & consultant

Cynthia is a degreed horticulturist who has worked with plants for more than 10 years. Cynthia's experience ranges from retail, wholesale, to hands on gardening in North Texas. Cynthia's focus with Flower Child Plants is working directly with her clients for horticultural consultations, creating designs, overseeing installs, and ongoing specialty garden programs.

"Growing up, I spent my time outdoors and in my mother's garden. My career began in 2006 when I applied for seasonal work at a retail garden center during the spring. My passion for gardening struck me in a way no interest had before, and though I was young, I knew horticulture was meant for me. I continued working at the nursery for 6 years and during college. I loved doing garden sales at the nursery, but also enjoyed spending time starting herbs by seeds, propagating house plants, and creating containers for our customers. I was a natural born entrepreneur and so I started Flower Child Plants in 2009 and did projects for family and friends during college. While in college I worked at Green Creek Nursery doing sales with independent garden centers and landscape designers. After earning my degree in Horticulture Business from Tarleton State University I moved to Dallas, Texas where I worked at North Haven Gardens as a Container Specialist and Garden Advisor in 2012. To further my career I pursued a position as a Horticultural Supervisor at the Dallas Arboretum, where I maintained seasonal color gardens and over 80 containers. While I was at the Arboretum, I collaborated with Amanda and began to focus on Flower Child Plants again working in residential landscapes, offering horticultural consultations, and selling planted arrangements at a variety of art and farmers market around the metroplex. I left the Arboretum in 2014 to focus full time on Flower Child Plants."

Amanda is a degreed horticulturist who has focused her career with hands on gardening. She has worked in a variety of landscapes ranging from Southern Colorado to Texas, both indoors and out for over 10 years. Amanda's focus with Flower Child Plants is working on site during installs, collaborating on designs, small stone masonry projects and ongoing high touch horticulture services.

“Growing up in El Paso, I spent my time in the desert hiking and mountain biking, when I wasn't helping in my family’s small business or backyard garden. In high school, I was inspired by nature and began living a low impact lifestyle. As my inspiration grew, I started an environmental club, recycling program and organized cactus rescues and relocation from demolition sites around the city. Starting in the summer of 2005, I began working for a small landscaping company in Durango, CO; and in no time I fell in love with creating and enhancing our clients’ gardens.

While earning a degree in Horticulture business, I had the opportunity to work at a large private estate in Fort Worth, caring for their landscape and 1 acre organic fruit & vegetable farm. Furthering my horticulture skills, I worked at my school’s turf grass and greenhouse research facility and restarted the horticulture department’s community garden my senior year. After graduating, I moved to Dallas in 2012 and began doing interior design and created live arrangements with Dr. Delphinium and Botany 2000. While doing interiorscaping, Cynthia and I collaborated and began working together on outdoor landscapes. We also worked together creating botanically inspired art that sold at local art markets and galleries. In 2014, I pursued my my love of the outdoors and landscaping by joining Flower Child Plants full time.”
