Frank Skinner has been nominated as a Greatest Manitoban, a contest being run by the Winnipeg Free Press. Vote for him now! until July 20 at

"A self-taught horticulturalist, Skinner is credited with developing hundreds of strains of hardy plants and trees capable of surviving the harsh prairie conditions...Skinner developed a particularly tough strain of ornamental fruit trees which quickly became a popular option for shelter belts...His extra hardy chrysanthemums, lilacs, roses and lilies have literally changed the face of Manitoba"
