THE Glebe Rd Uniting Church grounds will be transformed into a green thumb's paradise on August 30 as the Glebe Garden Club stages the Ipswich Home Gardeners' Expo.
Now in its 13th year, the annual show is the major fundraiser for the growing local garden club, which boasts 150 members aged from children up to retirees in their '80s.
Club vice-president and founding member David Murphy said 68 stallholders would show off a wide variety of plants and garden-related products, while guest speakers would provide valuable information on how to improve a home garden.
"We are a general garden club that is open to anyone and doesn't focus on a particular species," Mr Murphy said.
"We try to provide as many tips as we can on soil, compost and different species of plants."
Guest speakers include plant nutritionist Andrew Woodford, native bee expert Russell Zabel, radio gardening show host Claire Lavender, and organic crop protectant expert Leyland Minter.
LILY and herb expert Le-Anne Whittred will also be at the expo.
Each speaker will provide up-to-date information to help Ipswich gardeners.
In addition to plant stalls, there will be plenty of food and live music. Anyone can join the Glebe Garden Club.
For more information on the expo, or how to become a member of the club, phone Mavis Wakefield on 3281 0665 or David Murphy on 3288 8467 or 0415 503 314.
