Luc Thériault has been involved in horticulture since a very young age. Growing up on the Lower North Shore, he helped out around the garden centre that his parents ran there for some twenty years. After earning a DCS in landscaping and ornamental horticulture marketing from the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire (ITA) in Saint-Hyacinthe in 2001, Luc explored different aspects of horticulture, in particular greenhouse ornamental production and field-grown woody ornamental production. His love of horticulture led him to work for Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal for a few years before joining the Jardin botanique team in 2005. He has been a horticulturist in the Shrub Garden since 2010.
