Its day 6 of construction at the 2016 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show and our garden ‘Reflection’ presented by Australian House & Garden magazine is really starting to take shape! As we mentioned yesterday, our boathouse was craned into position on the lake last night, along with our steel water feature from Lump Sculpture Studio.
Exciting developments from today include our mulch from Spotswood Soil going in ready for the planting stage, and our fabulous plants from Antique Perennials arriving on site.
Check out the photos below to see the action from last night and today…..
And don’t forget to check back here tomorrow as we begin planting!
