Proceed with confidence! Get ready to contact Better Homes and Gardens!

PRESENTED BY DIANA COTTER

Diana trained in Amenity Horticulture in Britain over 25 years ago… back in the days when it was believed any garden problem could be answered with a chemical spray! She set up her own business designing, planting and maintaining gardens in London.

All this experience was brought to Australia 17 years ago, and much more has been learnt since. Diana has presented workshops for Sustainable Gardening Australia for several years and has recently joined BAAG as a garden consultant, specialising in sustainable design and advising on new approaches to gardening… all without the slightest hint of a spray!
