GardenDrumNew Sydney Gardening Show September 2017

Sydney looks set to have a 2017 gardening show with the brand new (and appropriately named) ‘Sydney Gardening Show’ scheduled for September 2017. Will this one work?

Sydney has had the worst luck possible with previous gardening shows. The ill-fated Australian Garden Show Sydney only lasted 2 years (2013 and 2014) after the blisteringly hot and parched first year was followed in the next year by torrential downpours, freezing winds and flooding in its Centennial Park location. On both occasions the terrible weather kept crowds away, despite it being a very fine show with excellent display gardens, products for sale and a good lineup of speakers. It was a critical success but a financial disaster.

This new show, brought to life by Expertise Events, will be at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse from 15-17 September 2017.

Gardening stars already signed up include Michael McCoy (‘Dream Gardens’ TV and ‘The Gardenist’), Judy Horton, and Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis (TV) and Phil Dudman (GA magazine).

    Whatever happened to the annual GA show? Is that still happening?

    • Not sure Cathy. The last one in Sydney a few years ago was also a financial disaster with very low attendance (despite an all-star cast of GA presenters) so I’d be surprised if anyone would take it on again.
