It’s that time of the year again, time to roll up your sleeves, slip on your best gardening gloves, and find the shovel in the back of the shed—the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show is back.
Here’s what you need to know about this excellent show.
The show runs from Wednesday, March 21 to Sunday, March 25, and features a wide array of exhibitors for you to check out while you’re there.
You can immerse your senses in the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show Sensory Zones with ‘Taste’ where you’ll discover an edible garden and tasting station, ‘Sight’ where you’ll see The Great Hall of Flowers, ‘Touch’ where you can feel the soil between your fingers and pot a plant to take home with you, ‘Smell’ where you can surround yourself with that sweet, sweet scene of lavender, and ‘Hearing’ where you’ll lose all that stress in your shoulders by listening to the water features, cascading waterfall and the meandering stream.
