Adelaide has a new three-day garden event in October, perfectly timed to celebrate spring. The Adelaide International Rose and Garden Expo will be the highlight of the 19th WFRS World Rose Convention and is being staged for the public at the Adelaide Convention Centre. This garden exhibition will have something for everyone.

The Expo will transform the Adelaide Convention Centre into an oasis with spectacular and unique floral displays featuring well over 10,000 rose blooms made possible by the generous support of Meilland International, Tony’s Flowers, and local garden-grown flowers. Continuing the focus on roses, the National Rose Show and the ‘Australian Rose Championships’ will be the centerpiece encircled by trade booths selling tools, plants, and products.

Nature Play SA will be running free children’s activities on Saturday and Sunday (10 am – 5 pm), showing children how to make “sunflower bee bombs” from clay, soil, and seeds as well as “bee hotels” for native bees, proving you’re never too young to start gardening!

A “speaker’s corner” will feature an extensive line-up of international, national, and local garden experts who will share their knowledge. These include Matthias Meilland, an international rose expert, and Sophie Thomson, a popular local garden icon.
