March into Melbournalia this month March 09 2014, 0 Comments
The city goes a little crazy in March with festival fever right across town. There's the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Moomba, Fashion Festival, International Flower & Garden Show and Queer Film Festival.
Of course, we know Melbourne's cool all year round. Dale rounded up a few of his fave hangouts for the current issue of Qantas's inflight magazine The Australian Way, including fellow Bourke Hill locals Rosa's Kitchen and rooftop bar Siglo. Read the article here.
March is a special month on Bourke Hill as the plane trees begin their annual fall and the amber light drenches the city streets with its final flush of summer sun. Pop in and say g'day on your next mosey about town, or make a beeline for the store to see what's new.
Among the sweetest new stock is Andy Walker and Gabriela Holland's Pop Plant concrete pots (pictured above). After moving into an inner city flat in 2012, they began to crave some greenery and slowly began to fill their home with indoor plants. It didn’t take long before they became incurable plantaholics.
Needing vessels to home their ever-increasing collection, they began to experiment with concrete to create their own planters. Their espresso collection above repurposes used takeaway coffee cups as casts. A little colour et voila - Melbourne's most stylish pots were created! Perfect for low maintenance succulents or even an indigenous creepy violet or daisy from our range of seedlings available in store.
