Deborah Moore is the indoor floriculturist for the Plant Production department. She produces a wide range of different plants, with many of them requiring specific types of treatment to achieve the highest quality. Moore's responsibilities include growing plants for indoor displays such as the Greenhouses, Garden Café, Wonderland Express, Orchid Show, Chicago Flower and Garden Show, and Krehbiel Gallery. She also produces plants for use in programs such as horticulture therapy, teacher programs, school programs, Camp CBG, and plant giveaways at the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden.
