Gardening Australia Expo

August 29 31, 2008 at the Sydney Showground will mark the end of an era in gardening - it will be the very last time Sydneysiders will see the much admired Peter Cundall at the Gardening Australia Expo. For one of Australia's most respected and revered gardening experts, 2008 marks almost forty years of broadcasting on ABC TV and radio and nineteen years as host of ABC1's Gardening Australia. In one last hurrah, this humanitarian and enthusiastic supporter of organic gardening and the environment will join fellow ABC TV Gardening Australia presenters Angus Stewart, Meredith Kirton and Jerry Coleby-Williams as they bring the program to life.

In entertaining and informative presentations, they will tackle a range of topics including climate-compatible and drought-tolerant plants, natural pesticides and organic gardening.

Revel in Peter's enthusiasm and passion for organic gardening as he presents Pete's Patch. At 11am and 3.40pm daily, Peter will unearth the secret behind his long and healthy life organically grown vegetables. With a series of organic beds and a six-crop rotation system, he will give you his tips and tricks for growing healthy and nutritious vegies in your own backyard.

Don't miss this great family day out to see Peter don his gardening gloves for the very last time at the Sydney Gardening Australia Expo. Whether you are looking for information and inspiration, entertainment and education or the latest garden and outdoor products and plants, there will be something for every aspiring or seasoned green-thumb.
