What is Gardenesque 2021?

Gardenesque 2021 is a two-day flower and garden festival in Albury that will be teeming with beautiful floral and garden designs that showcase stunning spring blooms and exotic flowers. There will also be interactive spaces that will surely stimulate your sense of touch, smell and sight.

The term ‘gardenesque’ was introduced by John Claudius Loudon, a landscape gardener, in 1832, and it refers to a garden design that emphasises a formal or artistic display of plants that also highlights the beauty of exotic plants.

The pandemic may have cancelled last year’s event, but now everything is full steam ahead. Gardenesque festival will return this year on 9 and 10 October. You’ll be able to experience the fantastic displays inside Albury Botanic Gardens at 481 Wodonga Place, Albury, New South Wales. You can walk to this location for about 15 minutes via Smollet Street from your accommodation Albury, if you choose to stay at Garden Court, that is!

Showcase Your Artistic flair for Flowers and Landscapes

Florist and landscape professionals are welcome to design and exhibit their floral and garden creations in this two-day festival.

In addition, participants will be able to interact with potential new clients, highlighting their business and skills.

Professional Florists

Professional florists can showcase their talent by creating and building anything in their allotted space, from a dreamy wedding arbour or a fairy tale wedding table setting, to popular floral fashions. There are no rules and categories involved – florists are free to create whatever tickles their fancy, and their only limit is their imagination.

Although limited, these spaces for professional florists are free, with no fees to join, either. Local and visiting participants are encouraged to exhibit their craft at Gardenesque 2021. 

Visitors are encouraged to select local Albury accommodation, such as Garden Court Albury, which is just a few minutes away from the venue. If you need to go back and forth a few times a day to the venue, this offers convenience and practicality.

Professional Landscape Artists

Qualified landscape professionals are also encouraged to exhibit their designs and utilise the latest products and materials available on the market by collaborating and partnering with local landscape providers. There are no fees to showcase a temporary display for the festival.
