If you’ve watched The Garden Gurus over the years, you will have seen some of the amazing flower and garden shows that have been featured from across the globe, today Trevor visits another at Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.

  • MIFGS feature amazing gardens and some incredible people behind the shows. Trevor speaks to his friend Kate Hillier, someone with one of the greatest jobs on the planet - a professional garden show judge.
  • Kate gets to see some pretty amazing gardens so she discusses how she makes the decision on what’s better than something else. The ’Wow Factor’ and is it inspirational? How practical and has it been put together well? Horticulturally, is it diverse?
  • Kate gives us three of her favourite categories and gardens to see at the show this year and why they are her favourites. These are stunning gardens.
  • The crowds are enormous at this event, the biggest flower show in the southern hemisphere. In the 5 days it’s open there will be over 100,000 visitors passing through the gates. Check out Trevor’s top 5 gardens on our Facebook page.
