Last year's inaugural Botanic and Rare Plant Fair had such great feedback and was such a success that Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, The Diggers Club and Melbourne Friends are delighted to announce this year’s dates for the 2017 Fair. With forty specialist plant and gardenware stalls selling everything the discerning and budding plant hunter needs, this year’s event is bursting with big, fresh inspiring ideas!
A curated program of talks, demonstrations and interactive debates with industry luminaries and gardening identities under the banner of ‘Towards 2050: Homo Sapiens vs Plants, Trees and Seeds’, promises to inform, entertain and provoke visitors with challenging ideas and fresh new concepts. Join us at this fantastic spring garden event that includes activities for junior gardeners and lively family fun, as well as practical and creative ideas about growing food, urban gardens, and nurturing our living planet.
