Rob (the one wearing the hat) is a qualified horticulturist with over 30 years experience in landscape construction, amenity horticultural services and continuing contributions to gardening education through radio, television, writing and teaching. Rob and wife Kate live at Glenview Park Farm near Beaufort in Victoria.

The property has included a nursery for at least two decades, first growing perennials for the nursery trade and then local provenance native plants for re-vegetation projects. It is now used to produce heirloom variety fruit trees and includes a collection of over 400 varieties of heritage and some modern fruit tree varieties.

Rob established Heritage Fruit Trees around 10 years ago to conserve heirloom fruit trees and make them accessible to the growing numbers of people interested in the tastes, genetics and the rich histories of our wonderful fruit tree heritage.
