Gra­ham Ross and wife San­dra wel­come you into their gar­den

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Tv Contents -

as BHG TV cel­e­brates its 1000th episode, there’s one pre­sen­ter who’s been there right from the be­gin­ning – Gra­ham Ross, the show’s gar­dener ex­traor­di­naire! To­day, he’s still in­spir­ing Aussies to get into their gar­dens, and en­joy the de­lights of grow­ing plants and im­prov­ing their en­vi­ron­ments. It’s a pas­sion that comes nat­u­rally – he’s been im­mersed in gar­den­ing since child­hood, and shar­ing its joys is still his life’s work.

SHAR­ING THE LOVE

At home with Gra­ham, it’s all about fam­ily, food and gar­den­ing. One of his very favourite places to spend time is his vegie patch, sur­rounded by his grand­kids. Just as his own two chil­dren grew up sur­rounded by plants, so the next gen­er­a­tion of the Ross fam­ily is also be­com­ing im­mersed in gar­den­ing.

A LIFE OF LAY­ERS

Along with TV shoots and to­gether with wife San­dra, daugh­ter Linda and son Kent, he also runs The Gar­den Clinic, with thou­sands of mem­bers around the coun­try. And Ross Gar­den Tours, the fam­ily com­pany, takes trav­ellers to ev­ery cor­ner of the world to ex­pe­ri­ence amaz­ing gar­dens. Visit ross­tours.com

SO MUCH MORE

There have been so many high­lights dur­ing Gra­ham’s fab­u­lous ca­reer, in­clud­ing be­ing awarded the RHS Gold Veitch Memo­rial Medal by HRH Princess Alexandra on be­half of the Queen. But he has lit­tle time for re­flec­tion – there’s so much more to get on with!

1 In amongst it – Gra­ham loves us­ing suc­cu­lents in pots, for their low-care good looks.2 Trop­i­cal plants dom­i­nate his back gar­den. Even the step treads are planted out!3 Ur­ban farm­ers Gra­ham and San­dra keep the whole fam­ily in fresh eggs.4 The vegie gar­den is a fo­cus of fam­ily time. And re­gard­less of the sea­son, there’s al­ways some­thing he loves to har­vest.5 Ev­ery cor­ner of the gar­den is over­flow­ing with ex­otic plants.
