Colour inspiration from the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show

I have well and truly stocked up on spring bulbs after visiting the very busy Flower & Garden Show, now I just need a few spare moments to get them planted into the garden! 

This pretty palette of colours might be something to consider for next summer / autumn plantings.

The Yates Garden stand featured an impressive mix of native and exotic plantings. Another great colour palette to consider too....

A beautiful patch of meadow blooms grown from seed.

The 5000 Poppies project

And yet another stunning palette featuring plantings of deep burgundy, berry red, black and creamy white grasses and flowers.
