The event is open to and suitable for all ages. It is also suitable for all kinds of weather too.

Come see why!

Plant experts will be stationed at each indigenous garden to offer advice on indigenous gardening, and its importance in attracting the amazing wildlife we have around us. There will also be indigenous plants on sale. So come be inspired, and start bringing your own garden to life with indigenous flora.
