Each year the show aims to showcase the amazing creativity of Australia’s best gardeners and landscape designers, with the emphasis in this year’s show on the environment and sustainability, with lots of advice on gardening for the climate we live in – such as, saving water while still managing to grow your plants, shrubs and flowers.  Here is a map to show you a bit about this event.
