You will be able to add some very interesting plants to your garden and you can choose from a wide variety of well grown and healthy plants. These are all grown by dedicated members of various Horticultural Clubs and Societies.
THE LAST EVENT
Imagine being able to come along to one air-conditioned venue and have all your plant and gardening questions answered by the people who know plants best and can offer suggestions on how they fit into a waterwise and colourful garden?
The event is sponsored by The WA Horticultural Council and the biannual Garden Clubs & Societies Plant Fair brings together affiliated members and their expertise in order to guide you as to the best plants for your situation. It is also the perfect opportunity to find a garden club to join and these can be both fun, as well as informative.

African Violet Society
Cactus & Succulent Society

ANYONE FOR HIBISCUS?
ABOUT THE HORTICULTURAL CLUB The WA Horticultural Council Inc is made up of delegates representing the majority of non-commercial horticultural bodies based in WA. Their membership is open to any garden club or gardening organisation and individual membership is not available.
The objectives of this Club is to "promote, encourage and assist the development of non-commercial horticulture within the State of Western Australia". They provide advice and guidelines on conducting shows, including the drafting of show schedules and regulations.
They also have been producing The Gardener's Handbook for many years now and this provides the "standards and classifications applying to horticulture in Western Australia". The handbook has been revised twice following contributions from specialist horticultural groups and it does rely on the relevant societies to update and provide amendments. The Gardener's Handbook costs $33 for an annual membership.
