This year`s Gardening Guru with demonstrations and talks through the day is Melissa King. 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, transformed front yards in Channel 9's make-over series Battlefronts, 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.
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, and growing edibles. Melissa’s book ‘Garden Feast’ is all about growing and cooking fruit and vegetables with old-fashioned flavour.
