Achievable Gardens

Entering its 12th year in 2018, the Avenue of Achievable Gardens is a key element of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. The Avenue of Achievable Gardens Design Competition offers students and educational institutions the opportunity to showcase their design skills and horticultural knowledge, promote achievable gardening, creativity and encourage the use of diverse, high quality plants in the landscape. It’s a great learning experience for students, allowing them to go through the process from concept design and project coordination, to construction of a show garden.

In 2017 the Award of Excellence for the Avenue of Achievable Gardens was ‘Awash with Nature’ by Ross Peck, Liz Beale and Dale Johnson for Swinburne University of Technology.
