Queensland Garden Expo 10th 11th 12th July 2015 www.qldgardenexpo.com.au

Check out the speakers’ program on the web & mark out the talks you want to go to as they are excellent. I find I need 3 days to cover all the talks. They don’t tend to finalise the speaker list until nearer the time. This is your only opportunity to buy plants from Birdwood Nursery as they are a wholesale nursery – they bring along what they can spare but unfortunately they don’t take orders beforehand. Hear Peter Young’s talks.  Annette McFarlane will also be giving talks. Chester Dott from Forbidden Fruit Nursery is also exhibiting.

Guest Speaker 11th June 2015 - Mark Parkinson is an Agronomist who promotes biological, sustainable, organic farming systems.

He will talk on foliar fertilisers, microbes, humic and fulvic acids, why disease occurs and how to prevent it in the soil and on the plant. He has two companies: Lockyer Agronomics and Total Fertilisers Australia. He is an advisor to the Avocado Growers but also deals in tree crops, cereals, vegetables and general  horticulture.
