Hello, I'm Annette McFarlane. I am a teacher, garden writer, author and broadcaster, but first and foremost I am a gardener. I have been gardening for as long as I can remember. So long in fact, that I was recently awarded the Australian Gold Laurel for Horticulture (2018) and inducted into the Horticultural Media Association Australia Hall of Fame. (image below) You may know me from my books: Successful Gardening in Warm Climates, Organic Vegetable Gardening, Organic Fruit Growing and Gardening Australia's Love Your Garden. You can also hear me on ABC Radio Brisbane from 6-7am each Saturday morning for Gardening Talkback. You will find my weekly gardening page in the U on Sunday magazine in the Sunday Mail. I also write the occasional article for Gardening Australia and Organic Gardener Magazines. Visit me on facebook for seasonal hints and tips about gardening. I post most days. . I hope you can join me at events like the Queensland Garden Expo and BCC Green Heart Fairs or at one of my many free gardening workshops held at Brisbane City Council libraries

One of the best presents that I have been given. No more carrying big things in a wheel barrow or making three or four trips.

Hard at work in the garden building a solid tepee structure to support a vigorous vine crop. The structure may not look very elegant, but it will soon be covered in vegetation.

 

New Egg Mobile. I am one happy gardener.

Two of our locals enjoying the only green grass around and a few of my plants but in dry times we do need to share.
