Event Description

9th September – All You Need to Know about Growing Fruit Trees with Peter Young (9.30 am)

Join Peter Young to learn all you need to know about growing fruit trees. Peter is an internationally renowned fruit tree expert based on the Sunshine Coast. A former Department of Primary Industries (Nambour) horticulture extension officer, he is the former owner, founder and managing director of Birdwood Nursery at Woombye on the Sunshine Coast.

Peter and his wife Sandra first launched Birdwood Nursery in 1978. From a small accredited avocado nursery it grew to become Queensland’s leading tropical and sub-tropical fruit tree production nursery, employing more than 40 people over 26 hectares and producing a broad range of fruit trees including avocado, citrus, coffee, raspberry, papaw, passionfruit, fig, mango, custard apples, perennial chilli, kiwifruit, persimmon, low chill stone fruit, dragonfruit and many more. Producing more than 150,000 trees annually, the nursery was recognised as Australia’s Best large Production Nursery at state and national level when under the Young’s management.

Peter has four decades of Industry expertise in pest, disease and weed-prevention strategies and is a world-leading expert in fruit tree grafting, budding and marcotting propagation including avocado clonal rootstock production. Under his ownership Birdwood Nursery was the first fruit tree nursery to become accredited in 2011 under the national HACCP bio-security management system.
