Hard to believe but another year flew past and we found ourselves back in the Carlton Gardens for the 2016 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show!  This year the weather didn’t exactly co-operate with some stinking hot days followed by cold wet ones but nonetheless we were kept busy with gardeners wanting to learn how to go organic using our eco-organic range.

For those who didn’t make it to the show here are a few pics.  Click on them to make them larger.
