After a break last year we returned to Nambour for the 2017 QLD Garden Expo. It was fantastic to see our QLD friends again and have a chance to show off our newest product: Slasher Organic Weedkiller!

Naturally there were plenty of other interesting things at the show and here are a few pics we took.  Click on them to make them larger. Enjoy!
