NYC Fashion PR extraordinaire turned plant lady, started with humble beginnings in a bamboo-thatched roof her father built in the lush countryside outside of Saigon, Vietnam. Sarner was born as by-product of the Vietnam War. 2 Generations, 3 countries, she traveled from Vietnam to Philippines to America, and here, she's found her calling. She loves plants, weeds, and "pleeds". Most gardeners can't seem to rid of beloved weeds that show pretty foliage or blooms in their garden, albeit invasive. MyLan caters to those who love plants and have a passion for keeping things alive, blooming and beautiful.
Married to the love of her life- Peter, she resides in Lyme, CT with her 2 dogs, a dozen chickens, and a darling 4 year old daughter and 1 year old boy. By day, she is a Certified Master Gardener from University of Connecticut, Middlesex Extension. By night, she is cooking dinner for her family from their organic veggie garden, hanging out laundry to dry, doing bed and bath time routine: reading, singing to her adorable and active children, and making it through bedtime stories without falling asleep herself. She is currently working on her Advanced Master Gardener certification and pursuing a Masters of Forestry from Yale University. In January of 2019, she will be pursuing her Landscape Design certification at the New York Botanical Garden. Most late nights, she can be found sitting in a well lit corner reading and perusing horticulture books and plotting her next client's garden scheme.
Having recently moved to Lyme from Essex, MyLan resides on Hamburg Cove in Lyme. Hamburg is a quintessential New England town. It is a perfect slice of heaven combining all traits to accommodate boat lovers, gardeners, as well as great place to raise a family. It has a good, small, hometown, rural feel while still being accessible to 95. MyLan also volunteers her time as Program Chair and Second Vice President year round with 70+ active members in her community of beautiful Essex, CT for Essex Garden Club. Essex Garden Club, is a not for profit organization and is part of the Federated Garden Club of America. So, not too busy at all :)
