Former 2UE Gardening Talkback expert Shirley Stackhouse has passed away at the age of 92.

She was part of 2UE’s weekend gardening show, ‘Over the Fence’ for almost two decades with co-­‐host Phil Haldeman.

Shirley was the author of many gardening books, was also gardening columnist for The SMH, Woman’s Day and New Idea over many years.

She grew up in Brisbane learning her love of gardening from her mother and grandfather, who had a rose nursery. In 2005 she received an Order of Australia medal for services to gardening.

Shirley is survived by her four children: Jennifer, Peter, Katie and Geoffrey; and by her five grandchildren. Her husband, aviation and defence journalist and editor, John Stackhouse, died in 2019.
