 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 



The Southern Hemisphere's largest and most loved horticultural event, the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, returns to the heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens in March 2017.

Now in its 22nd year, the Show's immersive Show Garden installations, the vibrant floral designs and innovative gardening products have been a constant drawcard for tens of thousands of attendees annually.

Double Chelsea Flower Show Silver Gilt medallist and Selling Houses Australia co-host, Charlie Albone, will be joining a cast of returning, award-winning and new design talent to create the stunning Show Garden in 2017.

Albone promises to bring his award-winning flare to an already robust line-up of Australia's foremost landscape design minds, producing extraordinary pop-up gardens for visitors to explore. A number of truly unique spaces will be brought to life by AQL Landscapes, Phillip Withers Landscape Design, Cycas Landscape Design, MPF Garden Company, Waddell Landscapes, Candeo Design, Tract Consultants and the Tree & Shrub Growers Victoria.

The hugely popular Gardens by Twilight will take place on Friday 31 March, with visitors able to stroll through the entire Show, under the disappearing light, until 9:30pm. Twinkling festoon lighting will cast a dreamlike mood over the gardens, whilst patrons enjoy a glass of sparkling and wander throughout until the moon rises in the sky and the stars come out.
