Garden delights for green thumbs at Maleny

with Brownie

THE hugely popular Gardening on the Edge weekend may have been cancelled this year due to COVID restrictions but this hasn’t stopped the Maleny Garden Club.

The club is more determined than ever to bring gardeners together and has organised a stupendous one-day Spring Fair event on Saturday, October 2 at the Maleny Showground from 9am-4pm.

The Spring Fair will encompass, everything wonderful that people have grown to love from the Gardening on the Edge weekends and at one easy-to-access location.

The fair, be centred in and around the Maleny Showground main pavilion, will include a main garden market and expo, and entry is free.

You’ll find an abundance of beautiful – and often exotic and rare – pot plants, seedlings, trees, shrubs and produce, many of which you won’t find anywhere else.

Some of the quality expo displayers and plant sellers will be Camellia Glen, Clouds End Farm Cottage Plants, Cut Above Tools, Darryl Banks Orchids, Earth Life – Soil Balance, Fairhill Nursery, Forest Heart Eco-nursery, Kerkin Garden Favourites, Mountain View Day Lily Nursery and Ramesa Nursery. Lots of suppliers will be featuring an amazing range of quality gardening products, tools and equipment.

There will also be staghorns, tropical foliage, botanical artists, Maleny potters and upcycled mosaics.

Experts galore will be at the fair to talk to and learn so much from about orchids, camellias, native plants, day lilies, tropical foliage and more. There will be someone who can help you with any question you have.

There will also be talks from the experts, demonstrations of products, scrumptious foods and beverages, and displays from local artists.

But wait, there’s more …

Local garden tours have been organised, with a hop on/hop off coach service running from the showground.

Tickets for the tour are only $5 per garden (under 16 free) and can be purchased on the day at the showground pavilion. Payment for bus tour is eftpos only – no cash.
