Motivation and Inspiration make for beautiful gardens
The cooler days of autumn make it a lovely part of the year to spend time in the garden, don't they? Doesn't matter if you are only having a cup of coffee outdoors the experience is enhanced when surrounded by greenery. A natural therapist friend of mine tells me that a sign of having a good blood pressure reading is when you can look into a garden and see multiple shades of green. Sixty six shades of green, in fact. Have you heard of this before?
If you are looking for some inspiration to work in your own garden, or would even just enjoy a leisurely walk amongst the beauty of gardens, the Redlands Good Gardening Expo is for you.
This free event takes place at Indigiscapes, 17 Runnymeade Road, Capalaba, on Saturday, 25th March, 2017.

Think the kiddies will be bored? Not at Indigiscapes. First of all, the lay out of the gardens ensures that the young ones maintain an interest. Ensure they keep occupied by looking out for koalas in the towering gums, as well as nesting parrots. There will also be craft activities for the kiddies with assistance from Reverse Garbage, as well as food and music.
These events can be hands on, particularly in the gardening Workshops and demonstrations so just be aware if you get involved.
