Robert Mallet is most definitely a Renaissance Man. His many careers overlap and beautifully compliment each other, morphing into one spectacular lifetime. Robert grew up on a beautiful estate, Moutiers, in the Seine-Maritime region of France. He started his advanced education in the US at the Wharton School, where he received a Bachelor of Science in 1982. Robert received an MBA degree from INSEAD in 1989. He became the Manager of the Parc des Moutiers, his family’s estate, in 1968 and continued (with some interruption for his studies) until 1985. He was one of the founding participants in the Courson Plant Show in 1982 and continued his plant show career throughout France. Robert was the Founder of the Association des Parcs Botaniques de France, as well as the Association des Parcs et Jardins de Haute-Normandie. He currently is the Director of the Shamrock Collection, the French National Hydrangea Collection, located near his family estate. His latest book is Envisioning the Garden (available on Amazon).
