Are you after rare and unusual plants?
The Ipswich Plant Expo is here to help gardeners source and collect those hard-to-find plants, and many of those old fashioned plants that no-one seems to grow anymore.
For the landscape designer, find out what all the fuss is about and why gardeners are passionate about plants. These specimens may be just the thing to give your next landscape installation that wow factor. Inspirational landscape plants will be there from aloes, bamboos, and so much more.
When looking to buy plants at this Expo, look for labels that tell you what the plant is. It should have a botanical name, and of course the common name. The plant should look healthy and free from any pests and diseases. We ask all exhibitors at this event to check their stock for quality!
Ask the sellers for tips on how to grow the plants you want to buy. Take the time to decide – take too long and someone else may buy it from under you!
If in doubt with any purchase, take a sit and listen to one of the seminars. Once you know that you definitely want to buy, head back to the exhibitor and buy the plant. With luck it will still be there.
Of course with all similar events, some of the best plants are sold early. Come early to avoid missing the best specimens.
And to help those plants grow, look for exhibitors that sell potting media, pots, fertilisers, organic pest control products and other related items.
We hope you enjoy your time at the 2012 Ipswich Plant Expo and if you did not find the plants you were after, tell us so we can source them for next year.
