POMONAL NATIVE FLOWER SHOW 2016
The Pomonal Native Flower Show is on again! It’s the 34th consecutive show AND it will be in a brand new hall. Come and celebrate with us in the little Grampians town of Pomonal nestled on the eastern side of the Mt William range between Halls Gap and Ararat. This well known show will run on the 1st and 2nd of October [9.30-5.00 on the Saturday and 10.00-4.00 on the Sunday] and is presented by the Australian Plants Society Grampians Group.
The Pomonal Hall will burst with the wonderful scents, colours and textures of our amazing Australian flora from all over the continent and all the 300 or more named specimens will be picked from members’ gardens. This year the charming plant family Goodeniaceae will feature and Leschenaultias, Scaevolas and Dampieras will take centre stage. There will also be a display of Grampians species and a special series of plant name explanation signs.
There will be book sales featuring a wide range of botanical, gardening and natural history books. And there will be hundreds and hundreds of plants for sale from forestry and maxi tubes to 6 inch pots and larger, including hardy, rare, collectable and grafted plants. There will be botanical art and refreshments for sale and a Village Market.
Three lovely local native gardens will be open for the duration of the show and entry to the gardens will be free with the $5 entry fee to the show [children free]. Directions to the gardens will be available from inside the hall. The first weekend in October is the Grand Final long weekend so you could make the most of it by visiting the beautiful Grampians National Park and its surrounds and the wonderful Pomonal Native Flower Show.
