Botanical Bazaar Blooms this Spring!

Botanical Bazaar Blooms this Spring!

The Gold Coast’s biggest Gardening Expo, the Botanical Bazaar is back by popular demand and will again be supported by Tropical Fruit World.

On Sunday, 3 September, the Botanical Bazaar will be blooming in its new 13-hectare home at the Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang. With celebrity gardens, more than 80 green inspired exhibitors, interactive workshops and kid’s activities, the Bazaar is expected to be a drawcard for thousands of nature lovers.

Costa Georgiadis, best known as a presenter on ABC’s Gardening Australia TV program, and Gardening Australia Magazine Chief Horticultural Editor Phil Dudman will sow the seed about community and organic gardening. In addition, expert horticulturist Claire Bickle and co-inventor of the revolutionary Flow Hive Stuart Anderson will share their knowledge to encourage native animals and bees to your backyard.

The event will be complemented by award winning botanical artist Julia-Rose’s parade of stunning live masterpieces, along with floral and basket weaving workshops.

There will be an array of plants from orchids to native and succulents, garden materials and supplies, aquaponics, hydroponics and vertical gardens, even exquisite botanical homewares for sale.

Visitors will be able to learn everything they need to know about composting, buzzing bees, growing their own food, DIY self-watering garden beds and how to make their own cheese.

Kids can get crafty at the Mr Fothergill’s Kids Hub, hosted by local environmental educators, Natura Education. They can interact with baby farm animals, see a cow milking demonstration, be surrounded by beautiful butterflies, learn about snake safety, plus walk through the large community gardens.

A delicious variety of food offerings will be available, along with locally grown organic coffee and brewers bar for the over 18’s. All complemented by live and local tunes by Mattie Barker and Mick McHugh.

City of Gold Coast Greening Officer Saraya Robinson said the Bazaar will have something for everyone.

“If you’re a keen gardener or have an interest in plants, a visit to the Botanical Bazaar event is a must! It will be a fantastic event with loads to see and do.”

According to the Bazaar’s event organiser Stacey Panozzo it’s the absolutely one stop shop for everything botanical.

The Botanical Bazaar will be held at Country Paradise Parklands Nerang on Sunday, 3 September from 9am to 5pm with tickets from $5 to $15.

Avoid the queues and get your tickets online from www.botanicalbazaar.com.au

  • Can you guess this seed?!
  • The gardeners at @nerangcommunitygardens, Country Paradise Parklands sure know how to grow a great luffa! First image shows it ready to be peeled. Second image shows it peeled and ready to be used as a body scrubber in the shower.

Harvest the luffa when it is young and the fruit is edible (bitter) in a salad or soup or wait until it is mature, peel it and let it dry to use the fibrous fruit as a body scrubber or surface cleaner.

Luffa is a genus of tropical and subtropical vines in the cucumber family. Stacey

  • Guess who's coming to the Botanical Bazaar this year! @gardeningaustralia
  • We love how easy sweet potato is to grow!

There's orange, white, purple skin white inside and white skin purple inside growing here. Let it grow continually and just 'bandicoot it' (dig up a few as I need them). Unlike watching your above ground veggies grow and become ripe it's always a surprise when you dig up a sweet potato - will you hit the jackpot and find a gigantic one straight away or dig for ages and only find tiny ones? All equally delicious though 🙂

It really is a surprise we aren't walking through sweet potato everywhere we go, it grows so well! Plant it in a specified bed and trim it back when it starts to grow wild if you want to contain it. 🌿Leah

  • BIG | BOLD & BOTANICAL! .
I was speaking to the creative  Natalia from @broadcroftdesign today about making a sign for the @botanicalbazaar and she asked me about 'Instagram' and how she could get more interest in her business page. So I'm calling all our amazing nature lovers who love to be inspired by crafted botanical art to check out her page! The work Natalia and her hubby do is incredible and worth a follow! 
@broadcroftdesign will be at the BB this year with another great display.
