Thousands turn up for Botanical Bazaar 2017!

What an amazing event we had in 2017! It was a perfect Spring Sunday to celebrate all things nature.

Thank you to the thousands of people who attended the Botanical Bazaar, plus our inspiring speakers, our quirky creatives and unique wonderful exhibitors.

As written by Nicholas McElroy, Gold Coast Bulletin on September 4, 2017 “GARDENING enthusiasts turned out in spades for the Gold Coast’s biggest gardening exhibition yesterday.

More than 5000 people took part in Botanical Bazaar supported by Tropical Fruit World.

The show held at Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang boasted 80 exhibitors selling products including exotic mushrooms and backyard bee hives.

Organisers said crowds “ex-seeded” expectations which was in part thanks to a strong attendance by young families.”

Happy Gardening,
Stacey Panozzo, Event Director

  • How awesome are Airplants! This Tillandsia has yellow flower spikes and some flower pods that have exploded and will secure themselves to the mother plant and grow. There must be over 30 fully grown plants within the clump and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It's the plant that just keeps giving. .

  • There was so much to look at within this exhibitor stall! Besides the lovely Dorothy who you may see volunteering or gardening all over the #GoldCoast, there was the @ediblescapes mandala, upcycled jean gardens, bug homes & delicious compost. The edible forest is planned to get planted out at Country Paradise in #Nerang. To learn more or volunteers, visit their page.

  • Can you guess what #edible plant this flower is from? 
We love letting edibles go to #flower to encourage little pollinators and collect seeds for the next planting.
