THE much-loved Queensland Garden Expo is set to take centre stage this weekend at the Nambour Showgrounds and the Advertiser has a double pass to give away to one lucky reader.
The Queensland Garden Expo is one of Australia’s most-loved gardening events, attracting the country’s gardening royalty to the speaker program, more than 40,000 visitors through the gates and injects more than $10 million into the Sunshine Coast economy each year.
This year the award-winning, three-day event will open its gates on July 8 when more than 360 exhibitors will have everything gardening-related on offer, including one of the largest ranges of plants visitors are likely to see in one place in Queensland.
Event Manager Marion Beazley said the event will once again host Australia’s biggest gardening speaker program including favourites such as Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis, Sophie Thomson and Jerry Coleby-Williams and regulars Phil Dudman ‘The Garden Guru’, Claire Bickle, Kate Wall and many more.
“What makes our event so unique in gardening circles is that Expo visitors have access to the best gardening minds in the country — both through the extensive 3-day speaker program and by chatting directly to our growers representing the many nurseries exhibiting at the event,” Ms Beazley said.
