Australian Horticultural Trials 2018

This year the NGIV is proud to again partner with Australia’s top breeders and growers as we present the Australian Horticultural Trials 2018.

In recognition of the extended reach and attraction for both exhibitors and growers, this not-to-be-missed event on Australia’s horticultural calendar has accordingly been rebranded. With the industry’s ongoing support, we are confident that this tremendous promotional vehicle will continue to grow and remain as a showcase for the whole industry nationally.   

This Victorian-based event provides supporting umbrella branding to exhibitors showcasing the very latest innovations in container, bedding, indoor and outdoor plants.
