Expo has it all

By David Rak

The Yea Rotary Club is holding a garden expo this weekend.

The expo provides an opportunity to view a host of garden-related products at the Yea Saleyards at Flat Lead Rd, just off the Yea – Whittlesea Rd.

The expo will feature a wide range of goods and services and a plentiful supply of food and drinks, much of it homemade, including Devonshire teas.

More than 60 vendors will be on-site with exhibits ranging from bulbs, seeds, seedlings, flowering plants and trees, to garden tools and equipment, garden art and ornaments, compost, fertilisers and more.

Quirky and popular horse-shoe garden sculptures produced by local resident Darryl Callander will again be available.

There will be lots of bargains at the book stall including pre-loved gardening books and a plant creche where purchases can be safely left until ready for pick up on departure.

The popular speaker program at 11am and 1pm daily offers the opportunity to rest and learn.

Topics are bee keeping for beginners, African Violets, Australian Native Orchids and attracting native fauna to your garden/property.

For more details visit, or keep up to date via the Yea Garden Expo Facebook page.

Entry is $7 and gets you free parking.

The expo is on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 3pm each day.
