Tickets for next year’s Ellerslie International Flower Show, to be held March 7 - 11 in Christchurch, are now on sale.
Planning is well underway for next year’s Ellerslie International Flower Show, which will be held March 7 – 11 in North Hagley Park, Christchurch.
Tickets for the premier garden show, which is presented by the Egmont Seed Company, went on sale today. General Manager for the show, Dave Mee says, “After the loss of this year’s flower show it feels good to be moving forward and putting tickets on sale for 2012 is a great milestone. We’re really confident next year is going to be a fantastic event. With our new sponsor on board and an influx of flowers planned – it’s going to be a bright and beautiful time in the city.”
This year’s Ellerslie Show was cancelled following the February 22 earthquake in Christchurch.
