The Australian Garden Show that closed on Sunday attracted 22,500 visitors in its first year. 

The entry way to the Australian Garden Show
Australian Garden Show event director Anthony Bastic said, “With the numbers of people that came through in the first year, it has given us the confidence to start planning immediately for the Australian Garden Show Sydney 2014.”

With outdoor design sets, exhibitors selling live plants and products, floristry displays, a Lindeman’s Garden outdoor wine bar, talks by international experts and catering by The Trippas White Group via the Centennial Parklands contract, the show focused on practical garden design for the Australian climate rather than Chelsea Flower Show-style grandeur.

The new show has created a niche for gardeners and designers with an interest in sustainable landscape design.
