One of the highlights of the Melbourne Garden Show this year was actually inside the exibition buildings and not out in the gardens. It was sponsored by Ford, which was a shame really, because they were giving away a $50,000 car and so their was a frenzy of patrons there, but they were all too busy filling out entry forms to notice what an interesting display of plants that was literally hanging around them.
what a good idea
I called these hanging plants plantballs. To me they appeared to be an inner core, which the sign said
was worm castings, planted with a plant, which was then encased in spaghnum peat, all wrapped up with lots of string.
Apperently the man behind this brilliant idea was Paul Hyland, a well known cut flower grower, renowned for his roses.
