Come wander around an impressive display of a wide range of native and exotic palms & cycads.

There will be an impressive display of native and exotic palms & cycads. There will be books, posters and magazines. Visitors will be able to ask the experts about the suitability of specific palms & cycad for their garden. They’ll also see unusual palms with, for example, distinctive red leaves and cycads with amazing blue leaves.

Whilst just a dozen varieties of palms are commonly grown in SE Queensland, visitors will be able to see 41 other varieties that are equally easy to cultivate. This will make their garden quite different to their neighbours and friends. A list will be provided free to all visitors.

They should also consider growing different varieties of cycads. These have interesting fronds & cones. They can be small, medium & large and are generally very hardy. Many are of no interest to the nasty blue butterfly. Again, a list will be provided at the show.

There will be a massive low-cost plant sale for growing indoors/outdoors, full sun/shade, feature/screening, fan/feather, rare/common, small/medium/tall. So a great place to indulge your gardening passion and make your garden look quite different to your neighbours and friends.

Saturday 9am – 4pm. Sunday 9am – 3pm. $3 per adult, concession cards $2. Free Parking.

Brisbane Botanic Gardens Auditorium, Mount Coot-tha.
