Flowers for Floriade!

Floriade has a fresh new look this year, and we love it!

Floriade has responded to the challenge of a socially-distanced flower show by distributing their bulbs around Canberra’s suburban shopping centres.

From troubled times come the most beautiful outcomes and we have all enjoyed seeing the yearly celebration of Spring popping up all over Canberra to cheer us up.

For many of us seeing the flowers in bloom reminds us that beautiful events can, with a little imagination, continue to flourish and give people pleasure.

So we thought to join in the fun and celebrate too. We chose five fabulous botanical works all waiting to adorn your home with Spring colours.
