I love hiking, travel, photography, art, and looking for peaceful places in a busy cityscape. I'm also dabbling in some travel writing - https://tinamaleela.home.blog
Go wild at Native Plants Qld native wildflower market
Springtime is an exciting time of year bursting with garden colour and new growth. It's also the ideal time to see native Australian plants in flower. Brisbane gardeners and nature lovers can admire the springtime blooms at the annual Australian Wildflower Spectacle and Plants Market on 7-8 September at Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha.
Organised by Native Plants Queensland, this year's market is themed "Colour your Garden with Native Plants" and will have a huge variety of plants from specialised growers. There will also be information exhibits by Queensland eco-groups and organisations on a host of related subjects such as bees, butterflies, reptiles, birds, botanic art, and natural history.
Native plant experts will be in attendance and can advise you on plant selection and care, and what to grow in any type of gardening situation, whether it be in a plant pot or on acreage.
According to the organisers, plants will range from tube stock to more advanced specimens and will be very reasonably priced.
Native Plants Queensland is a non-professional organisation that is open to membership by anyone interested in studying, growing and conserving Australian plants. It has 20 branches across Queensland, from Cairns to Kingaroy to Warwick.
Its activities include meetings and outings, talks, excursions and garden visits, native plant markets, exhibitions, conferences, community projects such as revegetation work, and maintaining a seed bank and library.
