Spring is South Gippsland is Springing Ahead

The spring season of 2017 brings year three of a website celebrating the many garden and varied horticulture related events taking place in the South Gippsland region between, roughly, the Leongatha Daffodil & Floral Show and the Rose Spectacular: www.springissouthgippsland.com.

To preview the events, and showcase the clubs, individuals and businesses involved in the horticultural scene, a special new event will be held– a Pop Up Horticultural Expo, on a main street in Leongatha on Thursday, July 27 from 11 am to 4 pm.

Kelly Hughes, an active member of Australian Plant Society and co-owner of Burra Garden Supplies, is a keen supporter of the Spring is South Gippsland concept, and links it with Burra’s own regular newsletter.

Kelly said, ‘Linking enables cross-promotion. It broadens the reach of our local events like open gardens and supports businesses like ours, as well as the events themselves. We get a lot of business and new leads from visiting garden clubs and tourists.’

With a current list of about twenty events (and expecting more), the website offers background stories and specialised horticulture/tourism links.

Current and new listees are invited to take part in the Expo.
