Great guest speakers and prizes at Gympie Garden Expo

You too could be a Grand Champion like B Polkinghorne

With over 30 sections in its potted plant competition, and $785 in prizes up for grabs, the Gympie and District Horticulture Society celebrates 70 years of service in the community this year.

Everyone is invited to take part in their May competition by entering lovingly cared for plants, from bromeliads to bonsai, at the annual Gympie Garden Expo, held May 6-7, at the Gympie Showgrounds.

Perhaps creating fabulous design is more your thing? Then celebrate in style with the special novelty section themed “Birthday” which salutes not only the organisation turning 70, but Gympie’s 150th anniversary.

Kids, from Prep to Year 3, also get to join in the fun by creating an artwork on A4 inspired by “the Magical Tree”, a poem by Pedro Pablo Sacristan.

Annette McFarlane and Tom Wyatt offer their practical advice for the garden and Paul Plant will get dirty in Compost Corner on Sunday.

Forms, details and competition requirements can be found at or please phone Lesley on 5482 1940 or for an entry form.
