About Bryce Lane





Bryce Lane discovered his passion for plants, and telling others about them working at a small Massachusetts garden center through high school and college. After earning his BS in Plant Science at the University of Massachusetts and MS in Ornamental Horticulture at The Ohio State University, he came to the Department of Horticultural Science at NC State University as a Lecturer in 1981. Bryce also served as the department’s Undergraduate Coordinator from 1987 - 2014. He spent 34 years teaching and advising over 20,000 students. He was the recipient of numerous local, regional, and national teaching awards. Bryce retired in 2014, but still teaches part-time in the department.



From 2003- 2014 Bryce hosted and produced a three-time, Emmy winning, UNC TV public television show called “In the Garden With Bryce Lane”. The show focused on all things home gardening and served all levels of gardeners.



He now spends his time giving horticulture talks, doing leadership, and communication training, teaching part-time at NC State, and at the JC Raulston Arboretum.


An avid gardener, Bryce has gardened on the same one quarter acre plot for 40 years. He and his wife of 46 years also spend plenty of time with their 6 grandchildren!
