Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The biggest horticultural event in the Southern Hemisphere returns for 2020
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 – and this year it turns 25!
Not just for Melburnians gifted in the landscaping and gardening department, the Flower and Garden Show is a lush interactive experience for all.
Over five days in March, floral and gardening experts come together to showcase their knowledge on the main stage, while 150 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 and floral designers showcase their brightest blooms across two levels.
This year Gardens by Twilight will return on Friday March 27 to give city dwellers the opportunity to visit the show after dark (and visit the botanical gin garden).
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.
