The Wondai Garden Spring Expo is on again and is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever!

This event will see such a wide variety of quality stalls for young and old, devoted gardeners or weekend warriors and for all styles and tastes.

Over the last few years our backyards have become our sanctuaries and people have certainly taken to transforming and enjoying the great outdoors literally at their back door!

So this Spring the Expo has you covered with all things gardening to get you out there enjoying your garden each and every day.

There will be stalls with garden art, exotic plants, fertilisers, upcycling, fruit and vegie plants, garden ornaments, pots and plant holders, outdoor furniture, botanical products, metal signs and just about any type of plant you might want!

We will also have competitions, horticultural displays, hot and cold food and drinks, crafts, clothes, local wine, honey and so much more!

This Spring, our Guest Speakers will include Penny Hegarty, Bronwyn Holm and Colin Purnell.

Penny is a Radio Presenter, Columnist, Tour Host and Competition Judge within the horticultural field, so she’s well equipped to answer your questions. Penny will be Guest Speaking on Saturday and Sunday

at 9am.

At 11am Saturday and 10:30am Sunday Bronwyn Holm from Earthfood will be speaking. Bronwyn is an engaging speaker and passionate educator committed to giving back to nature and helping to rebuild the natural environment, enthusiastic about her part of the global solution in soil regeneration and preservation.

Then at 1pm on Saturday Colin Purnell from Earthlife will be speaking about how to get the best out of your lawn. Most Aussie homes have a lawn of some sort, so knowing how to care for it properly will always be a benefit to any avid Gardener.

This Expo will also give every person that signs up to the Sunshine Mitre 10 Mighty Rewards programme, a free entry into the draw of winning a $500 Mitre 10 Gift Card!
