Over the years, he has “been involved in practically every aspect of horticulture, including research, new product development and introduction,” commercial growing and gardener education.He owns a marketing and development business, M. Gottlieb & Associates Inc., in upstate New York, that advises lawn and garden and horticulture businesses. He’s a member of the Cornell-New York State Greenhouse Advisory Committee.You can expect Gottlieb to mention Smart Pots, the soft-sided, sturdy but porous, reusable fabric containers in which he grows herbs.
