Collectors’ Plant Marketplace
Time Out says
Go green from home, this massive plant fair has gone digital
We’re all spending a lot more time at home, so it’s a great time to get your (garden) mitts on some new plants. Now that you're around, you're free to tend to the needs of your leafy companions and move them around the place to follow that one sliver of sun that penetrates your window. And without the freedom to invite over mates, a new succulent or flowering friend could sub in for the company you crave.
Many green thumbs and admirers of fine foliage were devastated when the Collectors’ Plant Fair, due to run over the weekend of March 28-29, was postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, in a move that's sure to please all you plant enthusiasts, the rare and unusual plants that were reared especially for the Fair have now moved online.
The Collectors’ Plant Marketplace will open online for 12 days from Thursday, April 2, until April 14. During this time you can peruse hard to find plants to your heart's content and fill your trolley with green goodies. You’ll then be allotted a designated pick-up point and no-contact pick-up time to collect your new babies from Monday, April 20. Alternatively, there's a home delivery option.
The Collectors’ Plant Fair’s main, in-person event will still be going ahead. We’re told the 15 year strong event fair will run later in the year with a distinctly springtime vibe. Plus, as many of the nurseries stocking Collectors’ this year are still in recovery from the bushfire crisis and have been affected by extreme drought, there’s never been a better time to show local plant rearers some support.
Check in on the website at 10am on April 2 for the big green launch, and get ready to get a hold of some beautiful new companions who’ll improve your air quality as well as your home decor.
