Anyone who has been fortunate to visit Allan’s property has witnessed the amazing magical bromeliad garden he has created with interest in every section of his garden, by using bromeliads of contrasting colours, sizes, textures and unusual markings, together with the occasional garden ornament, hanging baskets, tree stumps and branches adorned with air plants.

Members and guests are most welcome to attend this presentation that promises to be entertaining and informative, especially for anyone who is considering installing low maintenance and drought tolerant Bromeliad garden.

Normal meeting activities such as competitions, Raffles, Show & Tell, and a new activity called just “Show” for people who would just like to share a plant with others without it being critically judged or discussed.

Please note COVID safe restrictions do apply and for further information please contact Ian Hook, President of BSA on mobile 0408 202 269, email: [email protected] or refer to for the latest updates.
