KING

Hey there! I’m Gardenette Melissa King.


I grew up with gardening in my blood. As a child I enjoyed playing in my grandparent’s native plant nursery and at fifteen started working weekends in a garden centre, which fuelled my love of all things green.

I then completed a degree in horticulture and carved a career in gardening media becoming a popular face on gardening and lifestyle television shows as well as a well-known and respected writer, author and speaker.

I’ve worked alongside Peter Cundall on ABC’s Gardening Australia, combined my love of gardens, food and travel as one of the hosts of the travel series Gurus Explore, transformed front yards in Channel 9’s make-over series Battlefronts, hosted the gardening segment on Channel 10’s fun morning show ‘The Circle’ and inspired people of all ages to get out into the garden on Foxtel’s Garden Angels. I appeared on the The Garden Gurus on Channel 9 for over a decade but these days I’m proud to be a presenter on Australia’s favourite lifestyle show Better Homes and Gardens on Channel 7.

With two young boys of my own, I want every kid to get a bit of dirt under their fingernails and experience the thrill of growing their own food. I’m passionate about garden history, potted gardens, kids gardening, growing edibles, food stories and recipes from the past. My book ‘Garden Feast’ is all about growing and cooking fruit and vegetables with old-fashioned flavour.
