Avenue of Achievable Gardens

Now in its 11th year, the Avenue of Achievable Gardens is a key element of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. The Avenue of Achievable Gardens Design Competition offers students and educational institutions the opportunity to showcase their design skills and horticultural knowledge, promote achievable gardening, creativity and encourage the use of diverse, high quality plants in the landscape. It’s a great learning experience for students, allowing them to go through the process from concept design and project coordination, to construction of a show garden.

Each year Nursery & Garden Industry publish a booklet that contain recipe cards to help you create one of the gardens at home. Download your copy here.
