Quirky Containers Garden Competition

This year we are looking for super creative gardeners who think outside the box.

Let your imagination run wild……!

We are surrounded by things that could be repurposed into great planters and we would love to see your Garden in a Quirky Container.

Continuing on from the success of our ‘Garden in a Bag’ competition last year, in 2019 visitors were invited to join in the fun and enter a ‘Garden in a Recycled Container’ to have a chance to win one of three $100 prizes. All entrants also received a free ticket to the Queensland Garden Expo.
