The excitment's building for this years Queensland Garden Expo.
The Queensland Garden Expo is becoming something of a pilgrimage for me. I'm going again this year which will make it my fourth year in a row.
And after this years visit to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show I would rate it very highly.
If you're heading up this year I hope you enjoy the show as much as I know I will.
Queensland Garden Expo is a ‘must see’ in 2017 for green thumbs and novice gardeners alike. Held in the Sunshine Coast hinterland town of Nambour from 7th to 9th July, this three day expo is Queensland’s premier gardening event attracting 35,000 + visitors from all over Australia and New Zealand. Some of Australia’s leading Gardening experts take part in three days of lectures, demonstrations and workshops.
See plants, plants and more plants with over 55 nurseries represented and over 360 exhibitors. There is a full program of free lectures and demonstrations on eight "live" stages every day covering a vast array of gardening topics. Head to the ‘Gardeners and Gourmets’ stage for some great tips on growing your own produce and turning it into delicious gourmet meals. The ‘Giant Kitchen Garden’ features a totally organic food court with a fully planted sustainable garden constructed onsite. Get free help with gardening problems and plant identification from the onsite Plant Clinic and be inspired by the fantastic arrangements in the Floral Design Competition.
