Cathy Testa – Summer 2014

Cathy Testa, owner of Cathy T’s Landscape Designs and Container Crazy CT, completed the Master Gardener Program in September of 2010.  She holds an Associates of Applied Science degree in Horticulture with a concentration in Floriculture from the University of Connecticut.  During her studies, she managed a private nursery for a design install business in Bloomfield, CT.  Upon graduation, Cathy was employed at the Garden Barn and Nursery in Vernon, CT for two years before starting her own business, which she has been operating for ten years.  She served on the Board of the Connecticut Horticulture Society for two years on a volunteer basis, and continued her studies via programs such as the UCONN Perennial Conference. Her current business services include container gardening design and installations for homes and retail business store fronts, small garden design consultations, custom unique plant gift items, holiday installations and custom wreath making, some blog writing which includes freelance writing for local farmers market blogs, and prior to COVID, she offered regular hands-on classes and workshops on topics pertaining to combining nature with art from her classroom located in Broad Brook, CT and at various host locations.  Her attention to plant details, growth requirements of plants, and steps for success with container gardening, along with a passion for plants and their ornamental beauty, has contributed to her reputation of being “container crazy” in her area of services. Cathy Testa has also appeared on the CT Style television program, participated on the CT Food & Farm podcast, and regularly speaks at Garden Clubs. She’s been featured in magazines, such as GoLocal, and others. She maintains a small greenhouse and grows seasonal starter plants, such as tomatoes and hot peppers in the spring. Her offers are mixed and local.To see a history of Cathy Testa’s horticultural activity the past few years, click on the ABOUT link, and you will see much more!

  6. Hi Cathy,
    I don’t know if you remember me?? Diane Schneider. I googled you! And there you were !! Nelson & I are living now in Lake Havasu City, AZ. We sold our tractor to you & Steve. We worked together @ Aetna!! We love it here. Its been, what? 25 yrs?

    • Diane!!! OMG! Of course, I remember you! I tried to find you before on FB with no luck a few years ago. I would love to catch up with you. And get this – Steve still uses Nelson’s Kabota tractor all the time. In fact, he was just using it this Sat to pull trees from the woods to cut. That darn tractor is the BEST. I always said to Steve, I wish I could find Diane to tell her that tractor is still running strong. I want you to contact me via email. It is How cool you found me. Cathy
