Bio:   Geir Moen lives about 70 km northeast of Oslo, Norway. He has been passionate about plants from his childhood when his grandmother taught him how to sow and grow annuals.

By 11 he had saved enough pocket money to sign up for a membership in the Norwegian Garden Society! Later he trained as a professional gardener. Over the years Geir has grown a huge range of plants, from tropicals to alpines, but for the past 25 years alpines have been his major interest. He is particularly interested in propagation. His passion for growing plants led to his passion for exploring plants in their natural habitats. Geir has also organized several groups to the Carpathians and Maritime Alps, and is planning his first group to central Tien Shan in Kyrgyzstan in May 2019.
