The Ellerslie Flower Show, New Zealand's largest garden & floral exhibition, will be held in November 2004.   This year's event will be more spectacular than previous years, as New Zealand's garden has recently won a gold medal from the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in England.   The winning Kiwi garden was also one of the six gardens courteously visited by Queen Elizabeth of England during the exhibition.

The Ellerslie Flower Show is the largest garden & floral exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere, and is held annually in Auckland, North Island. This year, it celebrates the 10th anniversary and is scheduled to be on 24-28 November at the Auckland Regional Botanic Garden in Manukau City on 5.5 hectares surrounded by native bushes.   About 65,000 overseas and local visitors come to the event each year.

The Ellerslie Flower Show is not simply a display of flowers, but has become a major cultural event, showcasing New Zealand's lifestyle, contemporary art, landscapes and design, with creative displays of flowers and foliage. There will be more than 300 exhibits with many of the displays presented taking months to build. For this year, visitors will not only enjoy the fascinating floral and garden exhibits until late, but will also be entertained by famous musicians as well.

The New Zealand garden, which has won the award in May this year, was titled "100% Pure New Zealand Ora – The Garden of Well-Being" with a size of 10 m X 11 m, sponsored by Tourism New Zealand. The garden, which drew huge interest amongst the crowds at Chelsea, was created with New Zealand's native plants, distinctive Maori culture and geothermal landscape in a design that looks very different from traditional Chelsea entrants.

The award is an assurance that New Zealand has talented garden and floral designers and creators, and hence, those who visit this year's Ellerslie Flower Show will definitely be captivated by the exhibits.
