COVIDSafe Information

After a 2-year hiatus due to COVID interruptions we are thrilled to be returning for the 2022 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show presented by Scotts Osmocote. The health and safety of attendees, staff, volunteers, participating businesses and our local community continues to be of the utmost importance and we will continue to work with our partners and the relevant authorities on delivering a COVIDSafe event for all to enjoy.

We have developed a comprehensive COVIDSafe Event Plan and will be implementing a number of measures onsite that include mandatory vaccination, improved layout for social distancing, hygiene measures with our service providers across cleaning and food & beverage and access to sanitisation stations throughout the event.

As Event organisers we are closely monitoring the situation and any changes to the health advice or requirements for operating a major Victorian event. If circumstances change we will be sure to inform you via our website, alongside email and social media communications.

Please see below some answers to frequently asked questions.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.
