Rick Warwick from Bamboo Downunder is one of the speakers at the Gardening Stage.
Rick has been obsessed with bamboos for 25 years. He moved to Wongawallan 18 years ago and set up the nursery to best display bamboos and educate the public. Five years later he bought and moved the production nursery to Mudgeeraba because more space was needed.
Bamboo Downunder has imported many new species over the years to expand the limited range that was available 20 years ago. He has visited bamboo growers around Australia to understand the best conditions for each species now available in Australia.
Rick is a Board member of NGIQ.
