Pretty petals and a huge selection of succulents await at Portside Wharf’s Plant and Flower Market

If you want to add to your plant family, head to the Portside Wharf Plant and Flower Market on Saturday July 16 to shop a huge range of leafy babies, flowers and goodies made by local makers and creatives. more
