Recommended Posts

Prominent Queensland horticulturist Colin Campbell has passed away quite suddenly after a short illness. Colin is well known for his articles in magazines and newspapers and for being the Queensland representitive on the ABC 'Gardening Australia' television programme.........He was an advocate for the tropical/subtropical gardening and also has had a number of plant cultivars named after him. He will be sadly missed from the Queensland and Australian horticulture scene.

Andrew, I was thinking of starting this topic as well..... Very sad news!!!!

Colin Campbell has been a fantastic ambassador for all types of gardening in Queensland over the past 20 years or so, a media personality without a pretentious bone in his body, very accessible and helpful to anyone who approached him!! A larrikin and a gentlemen!!!! I have met Colin and helped with advice and locations for some of his Gardening Australia tv segments, he was always happy to promote palms!!

It appears that it was Colin's dedication and involvement that made the Roma St Parklands (as seen in threads by Daryl recently) a possibility... It seems it was his idea and his influence that has made it a reality. He has left a couple of lagacy's but this will certainly be one of them!!!

Colin was a great man and will be missed!!

Sad loss, a great man in the horticulture/gardening/landscaping fraterinty, I saw him once or twice speaking at the Nambour garden shows over the last couple of years. People like Colin don't appear to have any ready replacements coming through.
