Russell Young lives and breathes horticulture. He grew up surrounded by plants and gardens. He and his grandmother created the beautiful garden called ‘The Reflections’ which opened to the public under the Australian Open Garden Scheme, featured on Burke’s Back Yard and operated as a popular wedding venue.
Training as a professional horticulturist was an obvious career choice and he graduated immediately into a successful retail nursery career. After more than 26 years within the industry, he has developed a reputation as an immensely practical plants-man with a vast botanical knowledge. With a relaxed and personable presentation style, Russell is a popular and engaging event speaker.
