Gar­den­ing guru com­ing to Gayn­dah Show

Central and North Burnett Times - - GAYNDAH SHOW -

GAR­DEN­ING guru Tom Wy­att will be at the Gayn­dah Show to give tips on all things green this Satur­day.

He is de­servedly a house­hold name around much of Queens­land af­ter giv­ing gar­den­ing tips and prac­ti­cal ad­vice for al­most two decades on ABC Ra­dio.

Whether you’re an old hand at get­ting your hands dirty in the gar­den, or tak­ing the first step in set­ting one up, Tom Wy­att can help you with all your gar­den­ing needs.

He is a walk­ing en­cy­clopae­dia of gar­den­ing knowl­edge, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to trop­i­cal and sub-trop­i­cal plants.

Tom drew many fans when he came to Biggen­den last year to pass on his knowl­edge with the rose gar­dens and the adopt-a-pots in the main busi­ness area.

His work­shop at the monthly mar­kets at­tracted some Gayn­dah res­i­dents who posed the ques­tion, “Why don’t we ask him to our 100th Gayn­dah Show?”.

Tom never lets people for­get his first com­mand­ment – “Thou shalt love thy com­post heap! If it’s an in­sect and it eats your plants, spray it till it’s dead! If it’s a cane toad, squash it! If it’s un­thrifty, put a com­post bomb un­der it! Take no pris­on­ers. This is a Tom Wy­att gar­den”.

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to bring along their ques­tions or any plant cut­tings they want more in­for­ma­tion on.

There will be two ses­sions near the pavil­ion, the first at 10.30am then 1.30pm.
