Sunny skies saw garden lovers turn out for the Launceston Horticultural Society Late Spring Show held at Evandale Memorial Hall on Sunday. Tomato plants, roses, strawberries and fuchsias were on show as exhibitors highlighted the best plants to put in at this time of year.
For society members Erica Maxwell moving to Tasmania from the mainland meant a change in their gardening habits.
"We are both from Victoria and so this society was a great way for us to meet new people who also love to garden," Mrs Maxwell said.
"There is definitely a different environment here in Tasmania, so it was a whole new world of plants that we could grow.
"I lived in a suburban area with not much space to having whole acre here, so it's a huge area for me to grow lovely plants and flowers."
Pauline Torrents from Grindlewald said it was a great time to get planting ahead of summer.
"Now is the best time to be planting tomatoes and strawberries and fuchsias, which are my speciality," Mrs Torrents said.
Mrs Torrents said this was her 8th year of participating in flower shows and she enjoyed sharing her love of plants.
"People stop by our stall and we love to give them advice about gardening."
