Floral feast on show

As you’re probably aware, the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is underway, and this year is a cracker.

We are so lucky to have a show of such high standard and size here in Melbourne. It’s rated among the top five flower and garden shows in the world and is the largest horticultural event in the southern hemisphere. How cool is that?

Lots of demonstrations and talks, floral design competitions by floral designer students and for the first time, Flowers Victoria have handpicked eighteen boutique florists and wedding stylists to showcase their designs and different approaches to floral wedding decorating on a huge table, vying for the people’s choice award.
