- Special Event
Don’t miss the Botanic and Rare Plant Fair next weekend!
This year will be bigger than ever, with forty specialist plant and gardenware stalls from all over Australia! There are also talks, demonstrations, interactive debates, activities for the kids and the obligatory selection of foodie trucks to satisfy everyone’s appetite.
Our curated program includes gardening favourites such as Indira Naidoo (The Edible Balcony), Stu Burns (Garden Doctor), Georgina Reid (The Planthunter) and Professor Rob Adams (Director of City Design and Projects at the City of Melbourne).
Together, they will be covering a plethora of topics such as “Growing new directions for small spaces”, “Fiddle leaves, fashion and the future of gardening” and where Australian's find inspiration in “Searching for Australia’s garden identity”.
Join us at this fantastic spring garden event that includes activities for junior gardeners and lively family fun, as well as practical and creative ideas about growing food, urban gardens, and nurturing our living planet. This year’s Fair promises to inform, entertain and provoke visitors with challenging ideas and fresh new concepts.
The Botanic and Rare Plant Fair is incredible value, your $15 entry tickets grants access to all of the above – plus children under sixteen are free!
