The Auditorium at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens will play host to the African Violet Society of Qld's annual show on September 13th and 14th. Entry is $4 per person, with no booking required.

The show will feature the largest display and sale of African Violets and Gesneriads in Queensland. Plants, leaves and potting supplies will be on sale so make sure you bring some cash with you as credit card facilities will not be available at the show. A number of the beautiful show plants will be available to purchase - just be aware that if you buy one of these you will need to wait until the end of the show on Sunday to pick it up. If you're feeling lucky you might want to buy a ticket or two in the raffles that will be running over the weekend. Tea, coffee, sandwiches, cakes and slices will be on sale, should you need to refuel!

At the information table you will find books for sale and pamphlets relating to growing these beauties. You will also find a selection of craft items waiting to tempt you to splash some of that cash around!

Society members will be on hand throughout the two days to give advice on growing African violets and answer any questions you may have.

It is worth noting that a donation from the proceeds of the show will be made to the charity, DEBRA Qld. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare disease whereby the skin blisters and peels at the slightest touch. The skin is as fine as butterfly wings. Children with this disease are referred to as "Butterfly Children".

I love this show! I go every year because the plants are so amazing and you can buy prize winning plants for a bargain price.
