Melbourne Flower Show sign off
Yes it is Good Friday, but I drew the short straw and am at work, technically doing the watering.
Finalizing the Melbourne Flower Show project took up Monday and a bit of Tuesday, so in all MIFGS ran from Friday 27th March ‘til Tuesday 7th April for us.
I was reminded last week that I forgot to congratulate the Great Victorian Hanging Basket Competition winners. Congratulations to you all! Follow this link for the full list of winners.
I discovered that James Wall, owner of Garden World Nursery in Keysborough keeps a blog as well. Have a look at James’ blog for some great pics and very insightful gardening info. James and his family ran Floriana for many years and his knowledge of flowers and vegetables really stands out when he writes.
It has also been a busy week at Scotsburn because the garden centres have been gearing up for a busy gardening Easter. April is the ideal time for planting Primulas, Cinerarias, Pansies, Polys and Violas. Interestingly we have sold more flower seedlings this past week than vegies. That hasn’t happened for a very long time!
Of course April is also an ideal time to plant Brassica vegetables and beets.
