COGS MEMBERS’ MEETING

GUEST SPEAKER: GRAEME DAVIS

Graeme has been growing vegetables and flowers for exhibition for 40 years.  In that time he has won many championships and best in show awards, including being the most successful exhibitor in horticulture at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney on a number of occasions.  He has contributed to many publications in Australia and internationally on  gardenig and specialist flowers.  He is known not only for the flowers that he grows for exhibition but also for the varieties that he breeds.  Being born in Canberra and living here for many years has had developed an understanding of what works in Canberra.  Everything he grows is poduced using organic principles and he recommends thesr approaches to others at every opportunity.

Graeme will talk about his experiences growing for exhibition using organic principles.  It is normally assumed that to produce the perfect specimen of either flower or vegetable requires lots of chemical intervention.  Experience has proved this not to be true.  Graeme will talk about how he consistently produces flowers that are among the best exhibition specimens in Australia, some of the tricks he uses and some of the things that can go wrong.  These experiences can be translated to anyone trying to prouce high quality produce of any type using organic principles.

After Graeme’s talk we will have afternoon tea.  It would be appreciated if you could bring along a plate to share.

All members and their friends are welcome to attend and we look forward to seeing you there.
