Access info

Inspired by his family of gardeners and farmers, Jerry has been gardening since the age of four.

Initially trained with the Royal Horticultural Society, and in management with Brunel University, some years later he emerged from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the world’s foremost botanic garden, qualified in curation, horticultural estate management, soft landscape design, horticultural and botanical sciences. Currently, Jerry gardens in subtropical Brisbane at ‘Bellis’, his award-winning, affordable, sustainable house and garden. He is also the Queensland presenter for Gardening Australia.

At the Begonia Festival, Jerry will be speaking on a range of topics including begonias, a shortened version of his 21st Century Cottage Garden talk and are you prepared for sustainable living and gardening?
