Winter lecture – Recreating a heritage garden – by Angus Stewart
In 2017, after leaving Gardening Australia on ABC TV, Angus Stewart moved to an old dairy near Premaydena on the Tasman Peninsula. As well as having been a very popular presenter on Gardening Australia for more than a decade, Angus was a regular on ABC radio.
At Premaydena, Angus is currently trialling native plants for essential oils, experimenting with native plants, gardening techniques and battling wildlife. He is an authority on native plants and a plant breeder who has produced many new and interesting garden-worthy plants including the magnificent Landscape Series kangaroo paws. He is also an author of many books on Australian native plants and gardens, propagation and growing and in 2017 won a Laurel award for his book ‘The Australian Waterwise Garden‘, co-authored with A B Bishop.
Angus will talk about a garden he is working on with the local community at Premaydena. The group of locals called Premaydena Heritage Garden is creating a number of heritage gardens, including a 5 acre colonial style garden around an historic cottage. https://www.gardeningwithangus.com.au.
