Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - 2018 BRUNSWICK SHOW - Sam Gibbs

Celebrity gar­dener Sab­rina Hahn will make her first ap­pear­ance at the Brunswick Show this week­end bring­ing her vast hor­ti­cul­ture knowl­edge to back­yard en­thu­si­asts in the re­gion.

Ms Hahn will be at the show to share her ex­ten­sive gar­den­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and en­cour­aged any­one with a green thumb to bring along any plants with health prob­lems or ones they could not iden­tify.”

“I like to call it the ‘bring out your dead and dy­ing’ ses­sion,” she said.

“I’ll be talk­ing about in­creas­ing the bio­di­ver­sity of your gar­dens, bring­ing lots more crit­ters to the yard to eat the bad bugs and the im­por­tance of know­ing your soil.”

Ms Hahn said she al­ways checked out the fresh pro­duce mar­kets and the sheep dog tri­als when­ever she at­tended an agri­cul­ture show in the coun­try.

“I love wan­der­ing through the mar­kets, look­ing at all the fruit, veg­gies, jams,” she said.

“I love all home­grown pro­duce, I re­ally like to eat.”

Ms Hahn said she grew up in a coun­try town and loved get­ting out of the city.

“Coun­try peo­ple are al­ways will­ing share their tips and tricks in the gar­den,” Ms Hahn said.

The gar­den­ing ex­pert said she would also talk about mak­ing the most of ev­ery drop of rain and re­spon­si­ble use of fer­tilis­ers.

“Leech­ing is be­com­ing a ma­jor prob­lem and be­cause of the river in the area, over-fer­til­is­ing will mess up the ground­wa­ter,” she said.

You can catch Sab­rina Hahn’s talks and Q and As at 12.30pm and 2.30pm on show day.

WA-based celebrity gar­dener Sab­rina Hahn will be in town to share her ex­per­tise at the Brunswick Show.
