OF PLANTS & PERFUMES with Michael McCoy

Wednesday 24 Jul 2013, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

While smell is perhaps the most evocative of all our senses, it has always been seriously trumped by sight in the design of gardens. Join us for a nose-led international tour of gardens and plants, looking at the leaves and flowers that have the power to shape our olfactory landscape.

MICHAEL McCOY is a garden designer, author, broadcaster, blogger, speaker, garden tour guide and obsessive home gardener. He has been a regular contributor to The Age, Your Garden and Gardening Australia and has written for many other magazines including the British Gardens Illustrated. His first book Michael McCoy’s Garden was published in 2000 to critical acclaim, and his second The Gardenist, was published late last year.
