Botanix Plant Supply are again proud to have been plant suppliers at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 2018.

Designed by the team at Eckersley Garden Architecture the garden took out the Best in Show, a Gold Medal and the prestigious Horticultural Media Association award for Best use of Plant Life.
The design team included former Botanix apprentice and employee Rupert Baynes-Williams who described the planting palette as “…neither native nor exotic, but a mongrel”.
Among this ‘mongrel’planting we supplied, Hymenosporum flavum ‘Butterfly Scentz’ which was a favorite with the crowds and described by the designers as an interesting native alternative to Gardenia.

As always, we were very pleased to assist a number of emerging designers in the Avenue of Achievable Gardens including the winning garden by Seam Lam; ‘State of Wonder’. Our Brachychiton rupestris looked wonderful amongst her dream-like perennial planting.
