MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW WINNER 2010 & 2012

2020 Show Garden

The ‘Resilience’ Show Garden will focus on the health and wellbeing benefits of plants in the urban landscape, and how every garden has a part to play for the whole community. It will be a physical demonstration of how an urban garden can essentially be good for our wellbeing which in turns improves our resilience.

‘Resilience’ will be multifaceted picking up on the below themes:

  • Improved resilience of people when surrounded by nature (mental health and wellbeing, physical fitness, mindfulness, biophilia, and the ability to ‘bounce back’ easier from setback)
  • Improved resilience of gardens when multiple plant species are used that compliment and share a symbiotic relationship (drought, pest and disease, climate change)
  • Resilience of the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show to survive and thrive for 25 years

Site specifics: The garden will be situated on the edge of the lake to provide a stunning backdrop and present a relaxing and harmonious garden within an urban context. Patrons should feel immersed and relaxed within its presence.

Aspirational: Focus on improving the understanding and link between plants and health and wellbeing, and improved resilience.

Practical: Demonstrate a stunning and diverse garden that is appropriate and practical for home gardeners. Show solutions for the right plant in the right place. Focus on health and wellbeing benefits of plants, as well as commercial value of a well landscaped garden.

See Steve Day for Tree & Shrub Growers VIC, as well as several other Best In Show designers all coming together for the 25th Anniversary of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.
