Fun blossoming

THERE aren't too many events that can boast 25 successful years but the Warwick Horticultural Society's Garden Extravaganza is about to do just that.

The annual event is back again this year and will be held on June 12 and 13.

The show allows businesses to showcase their goods and services to the flower fanatics of the community and those interested in having a stall are being invited to take part.

The society's Margot Cory said the exposure the businesses received was tremendous.

"We usually get a good number of people through the door and it helps the businesses who come along," she said.

Once the extravaganza is finished, the group is also taking a trip to the Nambour Garden Expo in Nambour on July 6.

Mrs Cory said anyone with an interest in gardening was welcome to join the trip.

"They will come home with knowledge, a lot of new plants and they will be encouraged to get into their gardens and get ready for spring," she said.

The cost for the tour is $65 a person and includes travel and entry to the show.
