Is there really a language of Australian flowers, much like the Victorian language of flowers? Local botanical historian Cheralyn Darcey takes us on an exploration of the cultural developments of these intriguing ethnobotanical meanings and what it may mean to modern gardens today and into the future.

Cheralyn is a gardener and botanical historian who presents the award-winning weekly gardening radio show At home with the gardening gang on Coast FM963, writes the weekly gardening page in three newspapers for Coast newspapers and is the Community Gardening Educator of SWAMP (Sustainable Wetlands Agricultural Makers Project) at Tuggerah, NSW.

She has also written and illustrated twenty internationally published gardening and botanical history titles including many best sellers.

Cheralyn lives on the Central Coast at Lake Munmorah and is also a working member of many environmental initiatives in keeping with her vision to garden and live with a strong commitment to sustainability and community. 

All welcome.
