This year the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show was held in the unique World Heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens.

One of the highlights of the show this year was the innovative and beautifully colourful garden created by garden landscape designers Advanced Horticulture, who used decorative Perspex from Mitchell Plastics in a host of attractive colours to add beauty to the blooms.

The theme of the garden was colour and this was achieved not only by the floral element of the garden but in the bright and beautifully coloured Perspex used to create the structural element of the garden design.

A Perspex screen in Aurora Violet literally surrounded the entire display and the roof of the stylish pergola was made using 6mm thick Perspex Frost in Mandarin Orange.

Perspex was also used in the flower borders where Perspex in bright Bubblegum pink, a colour specially developed for the Australian market, was shaped and printed with a special pattern and used with Perspex Frost in Polar white to complete the look.

The designers, Advanced Horticulture, selected Perspex Frost as it is available in a wide range of beautiful colours and will perform well and look great outdoors. The ease with which Perspex can be cut, shaped, printed and installed made Perspex the perfect fit for their showpiece garden.
