The Territory’s favourite flower festival is back, this year with the theme ‘the future of flowers’, Canberra Weekly reports
Launched today, Floriade 2021 will run from 11 September to 10 October, and after the success of last year’s pandemic-induced ‘Floriade in the suburbs’, 300,000 bulbs will again be planted outside of Commonwealth Park in Canberra’s suburban areas.
Floriade executive producer Vickii Cotter said one million bulbs are set to be planted “back home” in Commonwealth Park, with year’s event to focus on sustainability.
“I mean, [sustainability] is something that we really should be having conversations about.
“And I think having such a beautiful festival that really features some amazing flowers is a great place to have that conversation.”
