The Ipswich Plant Expo will be running its fifth show on
12–13th March 2016 and the people of South East Queensland have embraced the event as the best specialised plant expo during the wet season – it’s a tropical/subtropical plant collector’s paradise.
Mayor of Ipswich Paul Pisasale will again open the event which sees thousands of people flock to the Racecourse grounds from across the state and interstate. Ipswich is recognised as one of the progressive city regions in Queensland and has the benefit of being just 35 minutes from Brisbane CBD.
The event was created as a result of so much sadness after the 2011 floods. People wanted to get back into gardening but did not know how. The event helped locals by bringing the knowledge to them with guest speakers, specialist plant sellers and a welcoming smile.
Local and interstate expert horticulturists will be speaking to share their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm. It’s their practical and entertaining presentations that gardeners keep talking about.
