NZ Gardener celebrates local gardening talent

NZ Gardener celebrates local gardening talent on show at the Pacific Rose Bowl Festival

The upcoming Pacific Rose Bowl Festival is an inspirational celebration of local gardening talent, says Lynda Hallinan, Editor of NZ Gardener.

“The Pacific Rose Bowl Festival has always highlighted the best of the Waikato’s roses and the ‘green fingers’ who grow them,” she says.

“This show in particular is a real tribute to local gardeners, and I recommend all keen gardeners head along to Hamilton Gardens over the week to see the displays.”

The Pacific Rose Bowl Festival is on at Roger’s Rose Garden, Hamilton Gardens, from Wednesday 15 November through to Sunday 19 November. Public judging of the New Zealand Rose of the Year will take place Wednesday through to Friday, with a special program for the weekend, including the Matthews & McGredy Rose Garden Tour.

“I’m always looking for fresh inspiration and new ideas, and events like this one offer a great opportunity to share ideas with other keen gardeners,” says Lynda.

Each issue of NZ Gardener features inspirational gardens from all over New Zealand, as well as handy tips and advice from knowledgeable gardening experts. NZ Gardener is on sale each month from all good bookstores and retails for $6.80 RRP.
