Australian House & Garden magazine will be partnering with Ian Barker Gardens to present 'Cross Roads' for the 2015 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.It’s amazing how time flies! We are now only two weeks away from day one of the of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show build! As we begin the lead up to the show and the unveiling of our garden ‘Cross Roads’, we would like to give a shout out to our fabulous partners who really step up to the plate every year and make this show what it is.
In particular, we would like to make mention of the brilliant team at Australian House & Garden magazine, who are our naming partners this year. Australian House & Garden magazine is Australia’s biggest-selling aspirational homes title and has been guiding Australian home decorators and renovators for more than 65 years. With a commitment to showcasing 100% Australian homes, House & Garden is unique in the homes market. Sound advice from experts in their fields ensures absolute relevance for proud home owners across generations, inspiring and informing projects in their homes.
As a design office, we love to build show gardens. It goes way beyond work for us and it is something we are truly passionate about. Without the support from our incredible partners, none of this would even be possible.
We have well and truly entered show mode now, and will be posting about all aspects of the build, the show preparation and our fabulous partners in the coming days. If you would like to keep informed of our progress and are interested in seeing how we fare this year, keep checking back here for regular updates!
