The biggest horticultural event in the Southern Hemisphere returns for 2019
In London it's Chelsea and in Canberra it's Floriade. In Melbourne, the event that sets plant-lovers' hearts a-flutter is the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Not just for Melburnians gifted in the landscaping and gardening department, the Flower and Garden Show is a lush interactive experience.
Over five days in March, floral and gardening experts come together to showcase their knowledge on the main stage, while retailers will share advice on the best tools, plants and designs for your garden. Walk through the immersive Show Garden installations at Carlton Gardens and marvel at the pop-up mini gardens by people with greener thumbs than yours. Follow the scent of fresh flowers into the Royal Exhibition Building as Melbourne’s best florists showcase their brightest blooms across two levels.
This year you can look forward to a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired indoor plant installation from the Plant Society, a series of mindful, meditative gardens created by Beyond Blue, a floral-inspired high tea from Holland America, and the Gardens by Twilight will return to give city dwellers the opportunity to visit the show after dark (and with a glass of wine in hand).
Whether you’re looking to redo your entire garden or just spruce up your indoor spaces with some greenery, the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is the place to be.

We asked for a further discount (or deal) for a small group of older ladies with an intellectual disability who would like to go to the show, and were turned down.
These ladies have been institutionalised most of their lives, and we are a non profit organisation.
The fact that we could not even have a slight discount is very dissapointing.
