Carnival of Flowers, Toowoomba.

Toowoomba’s annual carnival starts next Friday (19th September), and goes for a full week.
Do make sure you visit the Australian Plant Show, put on by the Toowoomba Society for Growing Australian Plants Stall. They will be selling a huge variety of native plants at low prices. It’s being held at the TAFE horticulture building, behind the Cobb & Co Museum in Lindsay Street.
The TAFE Gardens, particularly those at the Horticulture building, should also be seen. They make skilful use of native plants in a landscaped setting.
Don't forget to visit the both the orchid societies' displays as they always have native as well as introduced plants. You can often pick up some bargains there.
And do go and look at the prizewinning gardens in the native plants section. They should be particularly good this year, after the rain we’ve been having.
