Leafy entry for horticulture showcase
An avenue of trees popped up at Parliament House as part a horticultural showcase arranged by the Nursery & Garden Industry Victoria.
A team from Fleming’s Nurseries installed the display, which proved a popular photo opportunity for visitors.
Inside the building, the Federation Room was transformed into a vibrant garden.
Nursery and garden industry representatives shared information about their work with MPs.
In Victoria, the horticulture sector is worth more than $1.6 billion and employs more than 11,000 people.
A major upcoming event for the industry is the 23rd annual Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, to be hosted in the heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens from 21-25 March 2018.
