Best Overall Winner of Flora! Flora! 2002:

Dellene Hunt.

Dellene will be travelling to the Netherlands and Europe to attend a great northern Hemisphere Floral Event in early 2003 courtesy of KLM Airlines

With one day to go (Monday) thousands of Wellingtonians and visitors to the city have visited the new floral event which will benefit NZ CCS and had the opportunity not only to see the creative best our country has to offer but also to see the spring time splendour of the nation’s No1 Official Residence’s Grounds and Gardens..

Visiting Floral Master Abel Verheijen stunned the crowds with exhibitions of design and style not often seen in NZ. His artistry, wit and renowned expertise was absorbed by onlookers as well as experienced florists who will no doubt benefit from his visit.

Flora! Flora! is destined to be a welcomed annual attraction to the Capital and fits well into the diversity that the city is known for in its art and cultural reputation.
