Super spring plant fair at Noosa Botanic gardens

SPRING has almost sprung and gardeners everywhere are thinking about their gardens and what they are going to plant.

It is therefore no surprise to hear that the Friends of Noosa Botanic Gardens have anticipated this and been propagating furiously in preparation for their Plant Fair being held on Father's Day at the Noosa Botanic Gardens on Lake MacDonald.

They, together with some renowned plant, tree and palm suppliers from the region, will have available for purchase begonias to bromeliads, anthuriums to ylang ylang, natives to exotics, orchids common and rare, and so much more - a virtual plant paradise.

Also there will be walks and talks on topics such as birds, bees and butterflies; on herbs and vegies; on eking ecology outcomes.

And, as it is on Father's Day, Sunday, September 6, what man wouldn't be impressed with the showcase of classic cars from the Noosa Classic Car Club that will be on display.

Don't know about you but I have always struggled with what to buy the dads in our family (no not socks and jocks again!) as well as having a unique Father's Day experience.

Can't think of a better idea than to take him for a Sunday picnic brunch or lunch at the Noosa Botanic Gardens and let him indulge in plant paradise with a classic car or two on the side.

And, if you don't want to take a picnic, food and coffee will also be available.

Nice to know as an added bonus that the funds Friends of Noosa Botanic Gardens raise from this Plant Fair are directed back into plants, infrastructure and support for the Botanic Gardens.

Sunday, September 6, 9am to 3pm.
