''My grandmother used to say, if you're feeling down in the dumps, go and work with the soil and you'll feel much better,'' she said.
''It [worked]! I love being out in my garden.''
Mrs Coburn said she has loved being out in her garden ever since she was a child.
That love has stubbornly persisted into adulthood, netting her a vegetable garden, a flower garden and two glasshouses.
And for the past four years, Mrs Coburn has also been spreading her love of gardening to others, as secretary of the Taieri Garden Club.
One of her projects is organising a lecture series for the club with a ''very diverse range of speakers''.
''We try to get as diverse a range of interesting people as possible.''
Club membership costs $15 a year and the money goes towards the use of the hall and an annual bus trip.
Mrs Coburn said the club had 57 members ''at last count'', but it was always growing.
''And they're a very caring group of people.''
Club meetings had a question and answer session where members could seek advice about their gardens.
''If I've got a problem, there's always someone who's had it before and perhaps knows how to solve it.''
Non-members were free to attend the meetings if they wanted, she said.
The club just asked for a gold coin donation.
Its next meeting is today at 7.30pm, at the Mosgiel Presbyterian Church's McKerrow Lounge, in Church St.
Daphne and John McFarlane will be speaking about dahlias.
