Imagine Flying to America... driving for hours through thousands of acres of corn fields and finally coming to the very place where the Power Planters are made.
It literally felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The town is Loda in Illionois USA. That's a couple of hours South of Chicago.
It was time to meet Wayne, the 90 year old inventor of the Power Planters and hear his story of how it all happened. I bet he never thought he'd get a visit from a couple of Aussies wanting to say G'day and to thank him for what he pioneered.
The truth is... his little invention has helped many thousands of people get their love for gardening back again. I was delighted to be able to meet him and have a chat.
