Timo Bolte

str2When I was just a kid, I was fascinated by plants. I started with plants in my own garden and helping in neighboring gardens; later on I helped out in my friends`nursery, and finally ended up as an apprentice with Gregor Lersch. I worked with Gregor for many years. But there´s lots more I wanted to know about plants, every detail about them, and so I did my citizen´s service in the Botanical Gardens of the University of Tübingen. And one thing led to another… Living with plants got more and more intense and my understanding of plants grew ever deeper. After my citizen´s service I gave professional demonstrations on a freelance basis, among things as public relations for the TaiwanOrchid Growers Association. The urge to explore the unknown drove me to set off to the Far East. I had the good fortune to familiarize myself with the Asian plant traditions and Asian plant culture as Senior Designer with Hibiya Kadan Floral Design in Tokyo. After that, I set off to spend a little time in Paris, to acclimatize myself once more in Europe. At the moment, I´m active member of a leading events organizer in Vienna. In addition I also undertake photo projects and events abroad. One of my last projects was the participation at the German Qualifying for the Flower World Cup 2015 on the IPM in Essen.

My goal is always to fascinate people, create special moments and to surprise. I want to set the plant in the right light, place them on a pedestal. I want to make it clear to people that such a culture is entirely due to the plants. Plants have always been an active component of our lives, and still are. They turn any event into a special moment.
