This month’s Australian Garden History Society talk is the first in a series on Australian garden writing since 1788. The first talk in this series will be given by Dr Greg Johnson who will discuss the varies ways in which early Australian colonists sourced information and advice on gardening.

He was gardening correspondent for the subtropics with Your Garden magazine from 1989 to 1995 and, with his wife Lesley Watt, wrote a column about warm climate vegetables. He is founder of Horticulture 4 Development and Greg has collected early Australian gardening and horticultural books for over 30 years.
