Flower promotion in the city to celebrate the start of Spring

Spring has almost sprung and to celebrate we have something BIG planned.  It’s so big in fact that we can’t tell you the details… just yet!
What we can say is; the seeds are planted, the location is in Melbourne, it is grand, and there will be thousands of consumers to witness it, and of course the media will be there to help spread the word.

How you can get involved

To maximise the flow-on benefits to industry, the MMA and Flowers Victoria would like to use this as an opportunity to inspire and drive the public to purchase flowers from their local florist after the campaign.  If you would like to be one of the participating florists to be promoted or find out more details, please contact
Alana Pittard on 0400 813 770 – apittard@vff.org.au
Theresa Hunt on 9258 6191 – theresa.hunt@melbournemarket.com.au 

Find out how the City of Whittlesea can help your business

The City of Whittlesea will be delivering a presentation to talk to Market users about how local government can support your business.
Come along to get connected with Council’s online jobs portal, where you can post vacancies to local jobseekers, and to meet Council’s business support officers.
When: Wednesday 21 August 2019, 7:00 am
Where: Conference Room, Ground Floor, Market Administration Building

Now I’ve heard everything!

The world’s first hotel for houseplants has just opened in London
The hotel exclusively for houseplants offers a lifeline to ‘plant parents’ who are worried about leaving their botanicals to wither during holidays.
During their stay, leafy residents will receive a check-up from the in-house wellness team, which includes a custom hydration spa treatment.
Talk about pampered pot-plants!
