Graham Ross is a highly regarded and respected horticulturist, plantsman and gardening writer with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for gardening. Graham is best known as the gardening presenter on ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ and was previously the host of Channel 7’s immensely successful garden makeover show ‘Groundforce’. He is also an author of many books; keen photographer; publisher of magazines and a radio, TV and video producer. There seems to be no limits to his horticultural talents!
Each weekend Graham answers garden questions on Sydney’s top rating radio station 2GB. The ‘Garden Clinic Radio Show’ began in 1980 and is still going strong 30 years later, quite an achievement in this day and age! The Garden Clinic Club is Australia’s leading garden club and is produced by Australia’s most respected gardening family; Graham, Sandra and Linda Ross. They also present garden talk back on Stereo 97.4 in Melbourne which is streamed live at 9-11am Perth time.
Previously Graham was the Principal of Sydney’s prestigious Ryde School of Horticulture and Trustee of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney. Graham has also escorted a large number of Ross Garden Tours throughout Australia and internationally to some of the world’s most interesting and culturally significant locations. His tour company began in 1978 and is considered one of the oldest garden tour companies in the world.

You may find Colin sharing his unique knowledge of the magnificent Wildflowers of Western Australia on a tour by Ross Garden Tours throughout regional and outback Western Australia each spring.
Many West Australians never get to see the wonderfully rugged natural beauty and amazing wildflowers displays in the North-West of our state. This once in a lifetime experience is something every West Australian should do. If you would like to join me and fellow travellers from around Australia and the world on a trip to see what our great State has to offer, come and join me and we’ll discover the beauty and uniqueness of WA wildflowers in August 2012.
