Get blooming ready for Garden Day 2017!

October 4th, 2017

Time is ticking to get your garden ready for Garden Day festivities. With the success of last year’s first-ever Garden Day we are sure 2017 will be blooming even bigger. Remember Garden Day is a day to put down your secateurs and simply enjoy your garden, no matter its size or shape. So get those green fingers out of your garden gloves and send out invitations to friends for Sunday 15 October.


A flower crown fit for a gardening king or queen.

2017 is the year of the flower crown and we’d love to see you embrace this latest craze. Create flower crowns for your guests to wear, or use them for decorations. It’s also a fun thing for the kids to do to get into the spirit of Garden Day. And remember you don’t have to buy flowers, use what you have, and capture some of your own garden’s character in your creation.

Blomboy, Alwijn Burger, shows how easy it is.
