Current and up-coming


Thursday 25th October
7 for 7.30pm

The Friends of Burnley Gardens Invite you to an illustrated talk by Horticultural Media Star Jane Edmanson, entitled “My Life with Plants”.

Jane has been involved in horticulture for more than 40 years, working in propagation, growing plants, owning and managing a retail nursery along with television, radio and other media commitments.  She is author and co-author of five gardening books, and has contributed to the Gardening Australia magazine since its inception. She is in demand as a speaker at numerous horticultural and gardening events within the community plus festivals, libraries and schools.

Jane now takes garden tours to many places around the world, and shorter tours within Australia. These tours highlight gardens along with other places of cultural or environmental significance. Jane is patron of Royal Horticultural Society Victoria, Melton Botanic Gardens and The Gardens of Austin Health.

Jane loves plants of all descriptions and gets a lot of pleasure out of the wider gardening community. Always a really interesting speaker, Jane will share forty years of experiences with us.
