More than 15,000 people enjoyed Wyndham’s State Rose and Garden Show on the weekend of November 11 and 12 at the Victoria State Rose Garden.

The garden was buzzing across the weekend with a range of gardening stalls, interactive workshops and talks from gardening experts including The Fermented Mumma, Vasili, Botanicah Melbourne, The Plant Collector and many more.

Aerial performers, SWAY, entertained the crowd from above, while in the Green Hub visitors were able to pick up tips on sustainable living and gardening practices.

Wyndham mayor Susan McIntyre said other highlights included the inaugural Student Garden Gallery featuring local Wyndham schools and the creation of a field of wooden poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day.

“Visitors were also able to enjoy the beautiful Victoria State Rose Garden in full bloom and learn about the incredible work of the Victoria State Rose Garden Supporters who volunteer their time to care for the garden,” said Cr McIntyre.
