Hortiman and Hortipedia at the Australian Garden Show Sydney

There is so much planned for the upcoming Australian Garden Show Sydney, aimed at inspiring you to get out into your garden!

As well as outstanding show gardens demonstrating the latest in design and inspiring lectures and workshops, there will also be plenty of gorgeous plants to see and buy from the many wonderful nurseries.

I’m looking forward to my daily interviews as part of the Hortiman Talks program. I’ll be chatting with local and international landscape designers, gardening presenters, writers, and other media and visitors at the show. We are broadcasting live via social media on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @hortiman @ausgardenshow.

Our popular Hortiman™ mascot will also be there daily with free product samples and fun daily competitions for the whole family to take part in. Be sure to come and say g’day and have your photo taken with Hortiman, upload it using the hashtag #hortiman for your chance to win great prizes.

Another highlight this year will be the new Horticultural Highlights 2014 – Latest Release Products & Plants where the latest in ornamental and edible plants, tools and other interesting garden gadgetry will be showcased with the help of Hortipedia™. This will provide visitors with their first chance to see the next big thing in horticulture.

The Hortipedia™ Hub will allow visitors to find further details on each product via touchscreens, as well as find their local retailer locations.

Gardening brands should take this opportunity to sign up to Hortipedia™ and list their products for possible inclusion. Contact us via

I look forward to seeing you at the Australian Garden Show Sydney in September.
