Best of the bunch at botanical showcase on August 30
THE Gold Coast Gardening Expo, hosted by Botanical Bazaar and supported by Tropical Fruit World, is to deliver a showcase of local and exotic growers unlike anything seen before at Currumbin RSL on Sunday, August 30.
As the Gold Coast's only Gardening Expo, exhibitors are coming from as far and wide as Uki, Burringbar and Bundaberg to offer a unique variety of plants, products and botanical decor.
Event organiser Stacey Panozzo said the Botanical Bazaar would have air plants, cactus, aloes, succulents, frangipani, bromeliads, cottage flowers and rainforest plants for sale at the one-day event.
"Nurseries from around the region will have a large variety of plants available for sale on the day all perfect for sub-tropical gardening," Ms Panozzo said.
"There will be beautiful displays of bromeliads; air plants, also known as tillandisas, which grow without soil; plus a great new range of organic heirloom seeds ready for spring planting," she said.
"Selected specialty products will also available at the Bazaar - all botanical themed, of course - such as handmade herbal skincare, limoncello made from bush lemons, chemical-free natural soaps, locally made jewellery and much more.
"Informative sessions will be held throughout the day at the Education Hub, including organic vegie gardening with Phil Dudman host of ABC Radio's Good Gardening program, and visitors can enjoy some tasty treats with tropical fruit tasting by Tropical Fruit World, or head along to the cheese making workshop by Green Living Australia.
"It promises to be a fantastic day out, with a whole world of botanics all in one place."
