Further Detail

Sophie Thomson is one of Australia’s favourite gardeners. Her love affair with plants and gardening was inherited from her plant loving parents and her early training began working at the family nursery in the Adelaide Hills. Much loved in her presenting role on ABC TV’s Gardening Australia, Sophie also writes for the Gardening Australia magazine, the Sunday Mail and the Weekender Herald. An authority on gardening in South Australia, Sophie lives at Sophie’s Patch – a 3 acre property in the Adelaide Hills – where she and her family have created a remarkable garden on what was once a bare paddock. The Patch includes numerous contained spaces as well as a fully productive organic vegie patch, more than 100 fruit and nut trees and what she hopes one day will be a breathtaking, climate compatible ornamental garden.

This session includes tea, coffee and afternoon tea with Sophie and fellow gardeners.
