Jennifer Ott

Meet Jennifer Ott, owner of My Thyme Gardens. Originally from Traverse City, Michigan, Jennifer’s love and passion for nature began as a young child. Growing up in the country with woods as her backyard, her family’s vegetable garden was larger than her house. In later years, while living and gardening in Kodiak, Alaska, she would collect seaweed from the beaches in order to shift the volcanic ash-filled soil of her garden into rich, fertile soil. As her gardens flourished, her curiosity about gardening was piqued. She furthered her knowledge by working for The Mossy Tree, LLC back in her hometown of Traverse City. After five years of gardening, she was ready to open her own landscaping business in Macomb. Jen has harvested the best team of garden-whisperers that sow beauty and nourishment right in your front (or back!) yard.

Jennifer brings her custom designs to life in your gardens with a palette of hardy perennials for Michigan gardeners. Her passion is to educate and nurture the gardener in all of us. She carefully selects plants that encourage pollinators by incorporating only top-performing perennials. “The right plants for the right place” is her motto, and soil rejuvenation is her method.
