t is beginning to feel a lot like spring in the garden! Over the weekend, Gardenworld Nursery had their Spring Launch! This event is held once a year during August, just on the verge of the spring season. The concept behind this event is to ‘launch into spring’!
The weekend held many activities for all garden enthusiasts. There was experts (plant growers) who were giving talks, demonstrations and advice throughout the day. There was also a fairy-garden workshop, live music, specials, two $500.00 dollar vouchers to win and a fun happy atmosphere! It is events like this one that make you get excited for spring. There are so many amazing new plants that will be released over the next month.
One of my favourites on the day was a new hybrid daisy, first of its kind in the world, called Grandessa. This Argyranthemum has been breed with another plant, which is top secret, only the breeder knows what it has been crossed with. The vibrant yellow blooms look like miniature sunflowers on a bush! I can not wait to buy one when they are released later this year!
Are you excited for spring?
Until next time happy gardening! By Bonnie-Marie Hibbs ©BMHPhotographyTheGardener’sNotebook2017
