If you happen to be in the Toowoomba region from Friday 18th September to Sunday 27th there will be so many events on that you will find it hard to choose which ones to attend. You can mull over all the events here and sort out which ones appeal to you if you intend on visiting at that time.
Fast Ed from Better Homes and Gardens will be there ...
...as well as Charlie Albone who won the Chelsea Flower Show Award who undoubtedly knows a thing or two about gardening.
I usually visit Queens Park and Laurel Bank Park the week before the festivities begin as it is a lot quieter then and the gardens are just getting the last finishing touches. The viewing platforms are usually already set up then - at least they were in Laurel Bank Park last year.
You can see some photos of the 2014 display in Laurel Bank Park here.
I also attended the Teapot Extravaganza which is being held from the 19th-26th September and is really worth taking a look at.
A couple of friends and I also took in a couple of gardens of the winners of the Chronicle Garden Competition and if you don't want to drive to see each of the gardens there are bus tours which will take you there. Here are some photos from last year:
These were 'novice' gardens.
I think this was the Reserve Champion Garden. Very beautiful and it was a pleasure to walk through this garden.
So if you are considering visiting our region this year or in the future, keep in mind the Carnival of Flowers in September and I am sure that if you love gardening you won't be disappointed. By the way, our garden won't be entering in the competition. LOL! We don't want to make anyone feel jealous. ;-)
