Get your green thumbs ready — the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show is returning next month for its 24th year. Presented by Lawn Solutions Australia, this massive five-day horticultural extravaganza will be held within the lush surrounds of Carlton Gardens and the Royal Exhibition Building from Wednesday, March 27 to Sunday, March 31.

The 2019 edition of the much-loved gardening event will bring together many of Australia's most innovative and admired horticultural and floral designers. Visitors can check out stalls, expert talks, floral installations and show gardens and take part in floral design workshops. Highlights include a one-off Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired indoor plant feature, a large-scale installation of a whimsical palace and a range of comforting meditative gardens sponsored by mental health charity Beyond Blue. Meanwhile, plant-based designs from RMIT Fashion Design students will be on display in the Great Hall of Flowers and The Holland America Line is hosting a decadent high tea.

In addition, the Gardens by Twilight showcase will also bring Carlton Gardens to life just as the sun starts to dip. Held Friday, March 29 until 9pm, the after-dark event will feature access to all of the show's daytime features with the addition of light installations and live music. You can mosey through the elegantly presented grounds, stopping in at the bevvy of wine bars and prosecco vans, before getting a bite to eat at the gourmet food village.

Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2019 will run from 9am–9pm on Friday, March 29 and until 5pm all other days. You can secure your tickets here — if you book prior to Tuesday, February 26, you will go in the running to win a $500 gift card to spend at the show.
