Be inspired by this unique market with a reputation for quality and expertise. Visitors can unearth gardening treasures as they meet the experts that grow the plants.

The Tesselaar Gardening and Plants Expo offers more than your average plant market with the opportunity to buy direct from the grower. Situated in the heart of Victoria's plant growing community, this extraordinary market brings a wide range of gardening experts and their plants together in the once place for all to enjoy.

Set in the Historic Tesselaar Gardens (home of the iconic Tulip Festival) it is a place of inspiration and tranquility with picnic perfect lawns, shade trees and mountain views. In autumn the garden will be filled with Roses and Liliums along with a colourful variety of perennials for you to explore and enjoy.

Gardening connoisseurs and novices can gather knowledge during the weekend at the free talks and demonstrations. Gardening doyen and celebrity Stephen Ryan hosts the weekend. Among the gardening gurus imparting their wisdom are David Glenn and Meryl Johnson.

Visitors can enjoy a relaxing weekend shopping for plants and learning all about them at the same time. With more than fifty specialist growers there is something for everyone including; Roses, Spring Flowering Bulbs, Orchids, Dry Garden Plants, Clivia, Ferns, Perennials, Annuals, Carnivorous Plants, Heirloom Vegetables, Seeds, Herbs, Trees, Water Plants and more. A full list of growers can be found on our website.

A range of locally made food and refreshments are available or visitors are welcome to bring a picnic. Dogs on leads welcome. Plant Creche run by local Scouts will store purchases and deliver them to the car for a gold coin donation. We welcome garden clubs and coaches with plenty of free off street parking.
