A Garden Oasis in Melbourne
A Bronze Medal Winner in the Outdoor Feature Display category, the Oasis Garden is an interactive outdoor display garden overflowing with color and teeming with inspirational ideas that can be applied to large and small garden areas alike. Oasis’ expert horticulturists are on hand to talk about the easy use of seedlings and colourful potted plants to create your very own oasis of color.
Oasis’ contemporary design showcases the Visions plant range, while the spread of garden beds also includes violas, pansies, native perennials, a range of delicious herbs and more. The flower beds radiate in petal formation around a bright yellow centre complete with vertical sculptures reminiscent of stamens.
