A MESSAGE FROM THE TEAM
Together, with the support of Open Gardens Victoria and our sponsors, we have aimed to achieve our key objectives by demonstrating a diversity of plant choices, sustainable practices, and the promotion of the health benefits of gardening—all within the bounds of a charming, achievable design, and we hope that women who see the garden will be encouraged to take up a career in horticulture.
Thanks for your support during the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 2023.
From Emma and the team.
