Louis Glowinkski came to Melbourne when he was four. Emerging some two decades later with a medical degree from Melbourne University, he joined a busy family medical practice in the western suburbs. The rejuvenation of a neglected backyard orchard in his Caulfield home sparked his interest in, or more correctly obsession with, growing fruit, nuts and berries - including many unusual and tropical and semi-tropical plants.
