Auckland Flower Show ready to blossom
The Auckland Flower Show opens to the public tomorrow,
and gardening personality Lynda Hallinan says it will
be well received by gardening and floral fans alike.
The flower show is being held at the new, centrally
located venue of Alexandra Park. To have launched a
show of this standard is a credit to the industry, comments
Hallinan, who edits NZ Gardener magazine. The
Auckland Flower Show has well and truly met the standard

plants, she says.
Its going to be a great show and the people
who come are really going to enjoy it.
