Spring has arrived and the glorious roses at the State Rose Garden are in full bloom, it is the perfect time to explore the garden and discover over 5,000 roses in the grounds. This free event will take place over one huge weekend on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November at the Victorian State Rose Garden.

There will be a variety of garden specialist exhibitors as well as a stage featuring gardening experts including respected rose specialist and In The Garden’s (Channel 9) Kim Syrus, The Gardenettes - Chloe Thomson and Melissa King (also from The Garden Guru) and SBS’s plant and produce guru Vasili Kanidiadis with the latest tips and advice on getting your garden into perfect shape.

Relax in the garden and enjoy live music with a variety of food trucks onsite and even a Prosecco Garden! So pack your picnic rug and make a day of it all amongst the stunning roses.
