Plants to view at Pomonal show

POMONAL - Wetland plant nursery owner Aidan Banfield will be presenting a spectacular wetland plant display at this year's Pomonal Native Flower Show.

Visitors to the Pomonal Hall this weekend will be able to see native species that grow in and around water gardens and purchase them too.

The flower show, which always runs on the first weekend in October, will also feature a huge range of named native flowers - All hand picked from members' gardens.

This year the Australian Plants Society Grampians Group is drawing attention to the new scourge of the Australian environment, Myrtle Rust and is not displaying any flowers from the Myrtaceae family.

Instead, there will be an extensive photographic display of flowers at risk from the fungus.

There will also be a DPI Myrtle Rust display, showing signs of the disease and methods of treatment, but the show will still be full of colour, amazing scents and hundreds of incredible species of Australia's unique flora.

There will be thousands of rare and unusual native plants for sale, botanical, natural history and gardening books and botanical art for sale, while the ladies from the Pomonal Store will be selling refreshments including great coffee and Jill's beautiful cakes. There will also be wine tastings and a village market.

The show runs on Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 5pm and entry is $5 for adults and children are free.
