Are you tired of trying to resuscitate that shrub with browning leaves? Or fighting a losing battle with a destructive bug? Well think again, first aid for the garden variety has arrived. The Gympie Garden Expo offers a free plant clinic on Saturday May 3 and Sunday May 4.
Experts in their field Tom Wyatt, from ABC radio talkback and Paul Plant, Editor of sub-Tropical Gardening magazine will be available to talk to at the plant clinic after each of their session times.
Tom Wyatt returns to the expo each year with his down to earth attitude and sound advice that makes him so popular on ABC radio. Tom will be talking about ‘getting the soil right’, ‘alternative pest control’ and ‘identification of nutrient deficiency’.
