Bamboo Creations attending major events
We are getting ready for a couple of big events that are coming up over the next few months.  We will give you more details later but this is just a reminder to put these dates into your calendars.

Mt Macedon

The Mt Macedon plant lovers market is running on the 20th and 21st of September.  This market is held in Mt Macedon at the historic Bolobek and is hosted by the Mt Macedon and District Horticultural Society. The beautiful gardens of the historic homestead are reason enough to visit the market.  You then have many different plant growers and sellers including Bamboo Creations Victoria so the visit to Mt Macedon is a must for every Plant Lover.

Horticultural and Garden Festival

This is a 3 day event (9th - 11th October) held at the Melbourne Showgrounds. The main focus of this event is on Growing, Gardening and Cooking.  There will be many different plant growers and retailers as well as many different speakers and exhibitors.  Another great event to put in your diary.  Will give more details about this one and the Mt Macedon market in coming blog posts.
