PHOTOS: Green thumbs share love for gardening at Wondai Expo
WONDAI'S Autumn Garden Expo has become a favourite event on the calendar for South Burnett gardeners.
President of the event's organising committee, Helen Young, said even though the event was held on a busy Easter weekend this year, the crowds were not deterred.
"We have had some really good crowds at Easter because of the amount of travellers that are coming through," she said.
"A lot of people use the chance to come and see family and it seems to be a great place for family reunions and a place to come and relax."
For committee vice-president, Peter Biltoft, the expo is all about the community and sharing his passion for gardening with others.
"I have always loved gardening, it has always been there and it always will be," he said.
"I love the people, I have always been a people person."
Mr Biltoft said his love of gardening blossomed while he was working at a plant nursery at 13, and 60 years on that passion remained, especially for his favourite plants.
"Terraniums are easy to grow and hibiscus strangely enough outlast the natives with frost and all that out here," he said.
Mr Biltoft said he enjoyed seeing the young ones at the expo returning to nature and leaving Wondai with their ferns and succulents for homes and patios.
