Guest Speaker Chris Cuddy @ D2E Gardening Expo & Plant Fair
Chris Cuddy is a passionate plantsman who established Perennialle Plants in 2010 to make the frost and dry tolerant plants he loves available to the gardening public. He is a Horticultural Scientist with over 20 years experience in production horticulture and he brings this expertise to the quality plants he produces. His love for plants began when he was growing up near bushland in Sydney and much of his childhood was spent traipsing the bush and watching the plants and animals. His passion for plants further developed when as a young teenager he discovered bonsai and his passion for propagation started. Later, a Saturday job at a propagation nursery further flamed this passion. A stint in the country preceded his degree at Sydney University which saw him graduate with honours. Canowindra has been Chris' home for the last 17 years, and his beautiful nursery displays his passion for colour, texture and diversity in the garden.
