MIFGS is starting next week


The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show starts next week and I can’t wait.

It is always a big event for me and one I always look forward to. This year it is a little different as I am into my garden so much as well. I will be able to get real advice about what I’m doing wrong.

Because of the pandemic, it hasn’t been on the last couple of years so it will be good to get back there. I know there will be some things that are different, I mean you can’t through a pandemic and expect the world to be the same after it, but it is nice to see that some things are going to continue.

I’ve been very lucky that I was able to get media accreditation for the show so I am planning on going for 4 of the 5 days. Each day I hope to use something different to take photos and I might do a video of it as well. I hope to blog after each day as well, so be prepared for lots of posts from me.

I get press releases, so today I thought I might leave you with me so you can see what will be there this year.

As part of our COVIDSafe Event Plan, daily capacity is limited to 30,000 attendees.  It is highly recommended that you purchase your tickets online in advance to avoid missing out and to obtain the best value ticket price.
