Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS)

It’s bloom time this season with Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) - which is the best, biggest and most keenly anticipated horticultural event in the southern hemisphere.

The annual garden party was held last week at Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Garden, Melbourne from 20th – 24th March 2013.

Apart from showing its horticultural and floral excellence, the show brought together many of country’s best landscape designers, florists and suppliers in the heritage-listed Exhibition building precinct.

The ticketed event entered through the Great Hall bursting us into the most intoxicatingly perfumed and fragrant varieties of the season. As you walk past the hall, you can witness style wrapped in creativity, created by young talents in the floral-fasion show. Live sculptures, wall decors, floral arrangements, displays, floral fashion statement galore – all that you can ever imagine in a single show.

The hall opens up to the garden (Carlton Garden) where you can draw inspirations from live demonstrations on how to make your garden groovy and if you are lucky, you can also walk past a celebrity in the garden.

I saw kiddos having a gala time as they take part in Cubby House Challenge, get their face painted and dirty their hands with pot planting. So, the show had much in store for kids to keep them occupied.

Breakthroughs of the season were the Orchids, Primrose and Daffodils on display. I flicked a bag of golden Daffodil bulbs for my garden too.

Style and elegance was an inspiration from the landscaping designs, created by young and aspiring talent from Australia.

The Lindeman’s Open Garden was an added extravaganza to sample wines that are low in alcohol but delicious to taste.

Great show, fabulous arrangement, great line-up, fresh seasonal display and gorgeous presentation. In short, this is the best to witness on our own Australian soil.

So, mark you diaries every year so you cannot afford to miss this – I shall see you all next year ~
