Celebrity gardeners near and far

I thought it might be good to celebrate some talented celebrity gardeners. I have a couple of gardening heroes!

My thinking-woman’s crush is on the erudite Monty Don. I was completely addicted to his Around the World in 80 Gardens show which was on telly a few years ago. I found it both inspiring and beautiful.

My other celebrity gardener fave is Costa Georgiadis because of his enthusiasm and passion for plants and gardening. He’s one of those infectiously positive people who lives for his passions. I’ve watched all the Costa’s Garden Odyssey shows on SBS and I’m still over the moon that he hosts Gardening Austrlalia on ABC1.

Closer to home, my other favourite gardener was my dear maternal Grandmother, affectionately known as Grandma Claire. She had a beautiful garden and used to grow the most amazing and enormous proteas.

Who is your favourite gardener?
