Floral takeover

Floristry and landscaping students from Melbourne Polytechnic have joined forces to construct a floristry installation in the heart of the CBD.

As part of the City of Melbourne’s “Urban Blooms” initiative, the students will gain hands-on experience in a major industry event for their chosen area of study.

The secret garden-themed installation, Down the Garden Path was revealed on November 21 at the forecourt of the Old Treasury Building on Spring St.

In a bid to bring the city back to life after lock- downs, Urban Blooms encourages Melburnians to rediscover iconic Melbourne landmarks, lan- eways and boulevards throughout November.

Volunteer students from the Certificate III in floristry and Certificate III in landscape construction began installing of the flowers on November 20.

A total of 18 floral installations have adorned buildings and streets to create a bright path through the city until November 27.

The City of Melbourne, the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show and floristry consultant Elizabeth Ricci from Melbourne Flower Merchant have commissioned local florists to create a spectacular display at each location.
