ORGANISERS of the inaugural Baywest Spring Celebration which takes place from September 19 -20, aims to recreate the success of the once popular Addo Rose Show for the Bay.

“This is one of the reasons we have teamed up with Sherwood Garden Centre,” said Baywest Mall marketing manager, Samantha Hewitson. “We are fortunate to live in a beautiful gardening region and we would like to celebrate that.”

Even with the good rains and full supply dams, organisers are advocating water-wise and sustainable gardening techniques at the Baywest Spring Celebration, being held at Baywest Mall.

“The seasons have been kind and plants are starting to flourish,” said Sherwood Garden Centre owner Carmel Wolf. “We are fortunate enough for the city’s dams to be full, but we are encouraging gardeners to remain conscious of their water usage.”

“The festival schedule includes talks by the Bay Bonsai Society, the Orchid Society, and the Clivia club, as well as a children’s gardening workshop and flower arranging demonstrations,” said Wolf. There will be creative displays of plants, as well as plants to purchase.

Hewitson said the celebration was part of the centre’s plan to bring new and innovative activities to the city.

“We are continuing to make good on our promise to bring ‘big things’ to the Bay, and will be announcing our next big and exciting event later this week,” said Hewitson
