This is a bit of a late post, i have been busy re designing this new website so we can share more to our viewers. I'm no web designer but i am very stubborn when it comes to learning every aspect in our business which includes web design. 

Darwin recently hosted  the 2013 Tropical Garden Spectacular at the Botanical Gardens in June in which we were a part of.

For those of you that are in Darwin or planning to be in Darwin during the dry season come along and enjoy what the Territory has to offer.  The event is all about creating inspiration and full of entertainment.


Kevin the irrigation guru was there all weekend doing irrigation demonstrations & talking all things irrigation. We also had a display this year which took a bit of planning and last minute madness but was well worth it. Our theme was children in the garden, we basically wanted to show what you can do yourself with DIY projects using recyclable materials. Displays included a pencil fence, poly rainbow, the hungry caterpillar, scarecrows, birds, paper flowers, sea saw and much more. When i am on top of things in the office i will add some how to posts for those of you that would like to out a few of the projects.

The much loved Costa from Gardening Australia was at the event this year, sadly i didn't get to meet him but Kevin had a good chat with him and got come great photos together. Its great to see such well know garden celebrity's coming along to our Top End events. Costa spent a week in the Tiwi Islands the week before checking out what the guys have been up to out there. Last Saturday Gardening Australia had an episode showing the Islands, it looked beautiful and some amazing work happening out there even a boasting nursery which i didn't know existed out there.
