Emily Birnie developed the concept. All pieces on

the table were made from plants and it certainly

looked good enough to eat.

On the Award Plants stand, everything

old was new again with props ranging

from a vintage tricycle and antique metal

wheelbarrow to old trestles and tools. The

potted plants on show were swathed in

hessian adding to the old-world feel.

Big Leaf Wholesale Nurseries used bold

red to highlight their otherwise leafy green

display. Red accents from oriental parasols,

cushions, hanging ornaments and a red

carpet caught the eye and emboldened the

lush foliage display.

Also using colour well was the large, central

stand from Redland’s Nursery, which also took

the award for Best Greenlife Display. Here,

large leaf-shaped gondolas of different heights

echoed the nursery’s new logo with their shape

and colours. Each gondola was filled with a

new-release plant. A display of the colourful



‘Superbells’ called ‘Holy Moly’,

filled the lime green gondola (for more on new

plants from Green Expo, see page ‘New plants

and products’ page 37).

Leonie Sweeney from TyTags in New South

fabric to emulate the Olympic colours. Also

on display was TyTag’s Charles Sweeney’s

spiral plant stand, designed and built with

retailer Peter Thorburn from Honeysuckle

Garden Centres in Sydney. The stand can

while Big Leaf Wholesale Nurseries used red accents

on their stand (below left). Redland's Nursery won

Best Greenlife Display for their colourful stand, which

showcased new releases (above) while colour was also

a draw for the TyTags stand created by Leonie Sweeney

retail display stand for potted colour.
