THE Billabong Garden Complex staff are busy preparing for their inaugural ‘Billabong Garden Expo’ this weekend. Attendees will be able to ‘Ask An Expert’ about all things gardening, plant health, companion planting, decorative screening, edging, DIY natural body products, garden design, fruit fly, bee inns and more.

This year Billabong’s annual ‘Potted Succulent Competition’ is a part of the Expo and attendees will be able to vote for their favourite of the uniquely potted entries on display.

Billabong manager, Tracy Lamont said, “The expo is a great way for the community to come together and enjoy the numerous benefits of gardening. “Billabong is a social enterprise providing employment for local people with a disability and it’s also a wonderful way to showcase what they grow and create right here at Billabong.”

Entry to the Billabong Garden Expo is free and it’s is on this weekend from 9am to 4pm, October 6 and 7.
