President’s Message – August 2019

Do you have a good working relationship with suppliers?

I will be attending the Green Expo in the Gold Coast this month. This is a perfect opportunity to meet growers and suppliers of allied products face to face as well as seeing firsthand the quality of their plants. Allied products include trolleys, tools, fertilisers, pesticides and different varieties of pots and more.

There is also awards presented for new plants and products on the market. Visitors come from all over Australia to attend the Expo that is held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on the 6th (all day) & 7th (morning only) August. The Expo is run by the Nursery & Garden Industry Queensland

If you can’t attend this expo perhaps you could attend the Nursery & Garden Industry Trade Days where once again you can network with growers and see what is new on the market or see the quality of their stock and develop a good working relationship. Working together with these businesses can only strengthen our own businesses and raise the profile of our Interior Plantscape Association.

Information about trade days can be found on the various state websites or in the calendar of events in the back of Hort Journal Australia.

I will be on the Hort Journal stand so if you are attending, come and say hello

Have a great month

Karen Smith

IPA President
