Ken Wright

Ken started his nursery career in Helena Montana at the Valley Nursery after completing a BSc in Botany at Montana State. He and his family moved to the Calgary area in 1981 to start a nursery near Cochrane, moving to their current site in 1988…transforming a bare hayfield into Bow Point Nursery.

As the years passed, Ken directed the nursery’s attention to the native woody plants of Southern Alberta. The native plants grew, thrived and out-performed most introduced plants. Since then, Ken has been exploring the unique ecosystems of southern Alberta, developing new ecovars and cultivars for growing stunning landscapes around Calgary, Cochrane and the foothills.

Ken’s ultimate goal is to spend more time teaching, and less time hoeing…helping you create a self sustaining native landscape that can be enjoyed for years to come.
