By Kirra Livingstone

DESPITE the wet weather last week, hundreds turned up to the Queensland Garden Expo’s 40th anniversary event at the Nambour Showgrounds.
The event’s launch on July 4 kicked off with a welcome to country by Gubbi Gubbi traditional custodian, Lyndon Davies.
There was a selection of interesting speakers that followed, who shared expert knowledge about everything garden.
The green thumb enthusiasts expo stretched over four wonderful days, with numerous displays of beautiful plants and flower arrangements, and 360 incredible exhibitors!
The Expo also launched its inaugural crowing competition, to find Australia’s Grand Champion Crower.
