As it’s a new flower and garden show for Launceston and Blooming Tasmania and the organisers are hoping for strong support from local gardeners.
Speakers are flying in from Japan and Queensland and driving in from across the state and plans are underway to build show gardens in the park and arrange massed displays of spring cut and potted flowers from the Launceston Horticultural Society. There will be more than 40 stallholders exhibiting at the show which has also gained strong sponsorship from local businesses.
The show runs over the weekend of September 24−25 at Albert Hall and City Park in the centre of Launceston. The public opening follows a cocktail party launch on September 23. As well as the exhibits in the hall and the park, organisers have developed a network of related events including talks, an open garden trail, a sustainable fashion show, a long table dinner featuring local produce and a peace ceremony to close the event.
Admission to the show is $5. Download a full events program at Blooming Tasmania
