Russell Young has worked and loved the horticultural industry for 29 years. His passion for gardens and all growing plants began when he was a very young boy. His grandmother, Nana Bailey helped raise Russell and together they created the beautiful garden called 'The Reflections'. 'The Reflections' was an Australian Open Garden many times, featured on Burke's Back Yard and was also a wedding venue for many years. Russell propagated many of his own plants when he was just 17 and sold them at markets. He did this because he loved growing things and is fascinated by the perfection and imperfections of nature.
Russell is a walking encyclopedia and happily shares his knowledge with everyone. His involvement with gardening clubs and schools is well known within the gardening community and he is often asked to be a guest speaker around South East Queensland. You will find that if you have Russell to do a garden design for you not only will you get a great design with loads of ideas, you will undoubtedly find some of his passion left with you about your garden.
Russell is a member of the Horticultural Media Association Queensland and will be at the Nambour Expo on the Sunday at the HMAQ Plant Clinic.
