We are a nation obsessed with gardening, and nowhere is this more evident than at the Australian Garden Show.

Coming to Sydney in September, this is an event that amateur and professional gardeners alike will want to attend.

One of this year’s highlights will be the large-scale, custom-built inspirational gardens.

Make sure you stop by Andrew Fisher Tomlin’s ‘September Sky’, a beautifully conceived garden that was inspired by the sharp, crisp and silver colours of the spring sky.

If you’re a professional gardener, make sure you check these inspirational gardens out and get those creative juices flowing.

You may have an epiphany among the flower beds and come up with some fantastic new garden designs that will amaze your clients!

While you’re planning your future as a professional gardener, you may want to ponder the benefits that a comprehensive small business insurance policy could give you.

MGA Insurance Brokers can provide you with insurance that is tailored to meet the needs of and mitigate the risks faced by those working in the garden maintenance industry each day.

After you’ve visited the inspirational gardens, we recommend looking in on the urban gardens. These will be on a much smaller scale than their inspirational counterparts – designs perfect for a small balcony or courtyard.

Finally, if you really want to learn about current trends in the industry and developing your professional gardening skills, ensure you attend the Seeds of Wisdom Lecture Series.

These lectures will be presented by some of the world’s best and brightest gardeners and landscapers. Soak up some wisdom from members of the Nursery and Garden Industry, as well as speakers from the Landscape Contractors Association of NSW & ACT.

The Australian Garden Show will be running from September 5 to 8. Don’t miss out!
