Buderim Spring Garden Festival 10-11 September
Buderim is well known as the Garden Suburb of the Sunshine Coast, everything grows well in the red soil of the fertile slopes. Once covered in orchards and farms, now everyone with a green thumb can create a brilliant Australian garden. Buderim has some outstanding gardens. 6 of them will be on display over the Festival weekend.
The Festival also includes a Spring Flower show, specialist exhibits, and plant trade stalls. Sunshine Coast sculptors will present an exhibition and sale of hand-crafted ceramic sculpture, much of it designed for gardens.
Spring Flower Show will be in the BWMCA Hall, with Specialist Plant Growers both inside the hall and outside in the grounds as well, selling Herbs, Begonias, Orchids, Staghorns, Ferns, Roses, Hibiscus, Succulents and Cacti, Bromeliads. There will also be Workshops in the grounds both days as well as a Monster Garden Sale.
In the Maroochy Botanical Gardens at Tanewha, a 5-minute drive from Buderim, the Sunshine Coast Concert Band will present a concert from 2pm on Sunday 11th September.
