Serious plant collectors will have a chance to get their hands on rare, unusual and hard-to-find plant species from around the world at The Brisbane Plant Collectors Fair.

After last year’s successful debut, The Brisbane Plant Collectors Fair will return in 2017.

Hardcore green thumbs and wannabe gardeners will be able to browse bulbs, perennials, trees and shrubs, orchids, herbs, cacti and succulents and exotic tropicals.

There’ll also be guest speakers in attendance, sales on plants, and a selection of food and drinks available for purchase.

The second annual Brisbane Plant Collectors Fair will be held at Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens Auditorium (152 Mount Coot-tha Road, Toowong) on Saturday 20 May and Sunday 21 May from 8:30am to 4pm.

Tickets are available for $5 on the door; entry is free for children under 15. For more info, visit the event page.
