One of Australia's largest gardening events, the Queensland Garden Expo will this year celebrate its 30th anniversary as it attracts over 35,000 gardening enthusiasts and horticultural experts from across Australia and New Zealand to the Nambour Showgrounds between 11-13 July.
The Expo offers an action-packed program including 125 free lectures and demonstrations across eight stages, as well as more than 360 exhibitors and displays by over 55 nurseries selling over 40,000 plants per day. The event caters to every gardening need, whether you have a few pot plants or acreage or anything in between. The event provides access to the latest in gardening equipment and accessories as well as the much-anticipated release of new plant varieties which has people queuing down the road on the opening day.
This year, there will be a number of high profile speakers including appearances from Costa Georgiadis, Jerry Coleby-Williams and Angus Stewart of ABC Gardening Australia, ABC Radio Host Annette McFarlane, garden guru Phil Dudman and horticultural expert Clair Levander.
Other highlights include the Giant Kitchen Garden which incorporates a totally organic food court and a number of lectures and workshops on creating a sustainable garden; the free Plant Clinic where a dedicated team of gardening experts offers free personal advice; and the Landscape Garden Displays where local landscapers create inspirational gardens from a blank canvas at the Expo every year.
The Expo will once again commemorate gardener extraordinaire, columnist and long-time radio and television personality, Colin Campbell with the Colin Campbell Gumboot Auction, which follows on from the great success of the Colin Campbell Garden Shed Auction last year, where enough money was raised to support five community garden projects. Kids can enjoy a range of activities including street performers, musicians, the children's playground and the multitude of food stalls and special interest activities.
