Plant Lovers Fair 2019 is coming!
Whether you are looking for fruit trees, succulent, camellias or deciduous trees, they will be here. If you are looking for something special for your garden or seeking a particular plant you've always wanted, the Plant Lovers Fair is the place to go. It’s a regular event catering for both keen gardeners and amateurs and it's the only place on the Central Coast where you can find such a vast array of unusual and rare plants. There is also an enlarged source of decorative garden features as well.
Plant fairs are the big new trend for keen garden makers and the Central Coast’s very own fair is the gardeners’ friend – it’s close, it’s convenient and it’s a fun day out. Kariong is close to Sydney and it’s right here on the coast.
Once again this year, the passionate Costa Georgiadis, host of ABC’s Gardening Australia, has agreed to be our ambassador. Costa will be strolling around the fair on Sunday 29th September, speaking with growers and punters so come along and engage in conversation with our endearing host. From interactive talks to strolling and talking with both exhibitors and attendees, Costa will excite us with his passion for plants and gardens.
Our speakers program this year will feature our expert growers, all exhibitors at the fair, providing specific, detailed knowledge about the plants they grow and love. On Saturday, 28th September, Linda Ross, garden travel guru from The Garden Clinic and Radio 2GB will be giving an address at the Speakers Corner. Join us for her infectious enthusiasm and down-to-earth advice. At the Workshop Demonstration Program, you will find out more about the unique plants on offer at the fair. And if some are completely new to you, this is the best way to get the dirt on how to grow them and how to best use them in your local landscape. Our growers are all expert growers of their chosen plants and there is no better way to find out their “trade secrets” to growing success.
Catering is an important part of any fair and there is a wide range of food and beverages available from Turkish gozleme, to Vietnamese treats and traditional sandwiches, wraps and pies and more. You certainly won’t go hungry.
There’s plenty to help you get your precious cargo home too. The crèche has been relocated so you can load your car with ease. And to assist you, scouts will carry plants and other purchases to your car.
Plant Lovers Fair is a community event, run by volunteers and proudly sponsored by Seniors on the Coast.
