Garden Guru for 2018 on Main Stage Melissa King

 

2018 Melissa King is our Gardening Expert, with demonstrations and talks through the day.

Melissa has gardening in her blood. She grew up playing in her grandparent’s native plant nursery and at fifteen started working weekends in a garden centre, which fuelled her love of all things green. She then completed a degree in horticulture and carved a career in gardening media becoming a popular face on gardening and lifestyle television shows as well as a well-known and respected writer, author and speaker. She worked alongside Peter Cundall on ABC’s Gardening Australia, combined her love of gardens, food and travel as one of the hosts of the travel series Gurus Explore, transformed front yards in Channel 9’s make-over series Battlefronts, hosted the gardening segment on Channel 10’s fun morning show ‘The Circle’ and inspired people of all ages to get out into the garden on Foxtel’s Garden Angels. These days Melissa stars in The Garden Gurus on Channel 9 and is proud to call herself a ‘Gardenette’.
With two young boys of her own Melissa wants every kid to get a bit of dirt under their fingernails and experience the thrill of growing their own food. She’s passionate about garden history, potted gardens, kids gardening, growing edibles, food stories and recipes from the past. Melissa’s book ‘Garden Feast’ is all about growing and cooking fruit and vegetables with old-fashioned flavour
