Flower show celebrates 30 years


THE Australian Native Plant Sale and Flower Show was held in Leongatha over the weekend with a huge array of native plants and flowers on display and for sale.

This year also included a special display of a birthday party, made nearly entirely of native plants, to celebrate the show’s 30th year.

Run by the Australian Plants Society (APS) South Gippsland Group, the show started off in Koonwarra where it was held for 19 years, before moving into Leongatha.

The show featured more than 100 native plants on show, all grown in South Gippsland gardens, plant sales and book sales.

There was also a display of photos and newspaper cuttings and other memorabilia from the past 30 years of the show.

APS member Coral Hughes said the show usually attracted many people and this year was no exception.

“It was a good show. We had a steady stream of people through the doors on both days and the plant sale was very successful,” she said.

Cake and all: Ian Cornthwaite from Allambee together with Tilia Lohmus and Gay Cornthwaite put together a fabulous display to celebrate the 30th Australian Native Plant Sale and Flower Show held in Leongatha over the weekend.
