More Gardens Than Ever Before
Kicking off Wednesday 25 March, the silver anniversary of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show is an occasion not to be missed, with more striking floral and garden features than ever before, and an incredible lineup of some of the greatest landscape and floral designers in Australia and abroad.
In an exciting first, the crowd-favourite Show Gardens will be designed by an outstanding collective of Australia’s most awarded landscape designers, who have each previously won the coveted ‘Award of Excellence for Best in Show.’ Representing the unbridled unique vision of each designer, the Show Garden precinct will exhibit a calibre of skill and creativity like never before. The award-winning designers returning in 2020 include: Phillip Withers, MINT Pool + Landscape Design, Dean Herald – Rolling Stone Landscapes, Vivid Design, Mark Browning Landscape Design, Warners Nurseries in collaboration with Robert Boyle, Koji Ninomiya (Japan), and Steve Day for Tree & Shrub Growers VIC.
Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show Event Director, Marcus Gale, explained that the silver anniversary of the Show will feature the most accomplished and award-winning landscape and floral talent in event history.
“After 25 years the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show continues to attract the best floral and landscape design talent, locally and internationally, to create truly exceptional Show Gardens and Floral Feature displays. This year’s event will be unparalleled in terms of its scale and imagination. If ever there’s a year to come, this is it,” said Gale.
“To give a sense of scale, there will be an increase in the number of Garden displays by more than 40% which amounts to an additional 1,000sqm of various garden displays for the public to enjoy. From our new balcony and small space gardens, to boutique and achievable style gardens, right up to the jaw-dropping Show Gardens designed by our top, award-winning designers. In this special year, there’s something for everyone.”
