Gail Scrivener chats about the latest CHS tour to flower-filled Melbourne

The Melbourne Flower Show was a wonderful and most enjoyable experience for all 28 tour participants.

DSCF2215DSCF2223Set in the magnificent Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens, we were treated to a feast of colourful exhibits and landscape design that did not dissapoint. These displays showed the great imagination and originality of the best floral talent that Australia has to offer and delighted us all.

Along with all shows of this nature there was an extensive array of high quality garden retail product for the shoppers amongst us!

Unfortunately the weather was not so kind for our day trips to  Mt Macedon and the Dandenongs, however this did not prevent us from viewing the gardens, meeting and talking with our hosts and in general enjoying the hospitality bestowed on us.

For those who were unable to join us on this last trip another tour for 2017 is proposed (depending on your interest).
