The Noosa Plant Fair

Another weekend - another plant fair. This time at the Noosa Botanic Gardens near Lake MacDonald.  At this time of year there seems to be quite a few of these events.

This was one plant stall I was looking forward to seeing - a local heliconia and ginger nursery - Towen Mount Tropicals. It was a little disappointing because they had very few heliconias (too early in the season) and even though we were there not long after opening time, most of the plants had already sold. I did find one heliconia and a ginger that came home with us though.

Being Spring, there were lots of annuals for sale. While they are pretty I am never tempted to buy annuals.

The "Friends of the Noosa Botanic Gardens" had a plant stall with some very reasonably priced plants. John found another cycad for the front garden.

It was a beautiful setting. One day we will have to return just to look at the gardens. The hinterland in from Noosa has quite a bit of remnant rainforest and is a beautiful area to explore.


  1. Ooh I love plant sorry you didn't get as many heliconias and gingers as anticipated but it seems as if John scored big time.
    Missy's second garden will be looking good in no time.

  2. What a great way to start your new garden. I always love buying plants from the people who've grown them. :o)
