Chelsea van Rijn is a horticultural expert with a love of all things home and garden. Coming from a family of gardening enthusiasts and professional landscapers it seems like gardening has always been in her blood or at least always in her roots.
With accolades such as Queensland Young Horticulturist of the Year to her name, Chelsea is passionate about her chosen field and loves to help others with her gardening knowledge. She can be found most days helping people create their growing environment at her family’s award winning garden centre – Trevallan Lifestyle Centre.
Chelsea loves to share all things gardening at gardening events and clubs across the state. She has also been a judge for Gardening competitions throughout Queensland and ran her own Gardening Competition in her local town when the previous competition stopped. Chelsea is also kept busy writing for gardening publications and various other websites and organisations.
Chelsea, a keen organic gardener, loves to potter in her own garden. She is currently creating a mixed edible and ornamental garden from scratch and meeting with many challenges along the way, like soil with no worms!
Chelsea is also passionate about aromatherapy and has created her own essential oil blend, Wisdom, distributed by Perfect Potion, a world renowned aromatherapy company.
