Green thumbs gather at the Perth Garden Festival 2018

Thousands of local green thumbs headed down to McCallum Park in Victoria Park for four fun filled days of garden, outdoor living and household inspiration at the 2018 Perth Garden Festival.

Kleenheat was excited to be back on board this year with an exclusive 50% off tickets for our customers.

While it was a wet start to the festival, the autumn sun came out just in time for festival goers to enjoy a great day out exploring the show gardens, plants, gardening equipment and so much more on display!

The Kleenheat Kitchen returned to sizzle this year with local WA chefs Vince Garreffa, Guy Jeffreys and Anna Gare.

Each chef brought their own flare and flavour to the kitchen, dishing out cooking tips in spades while preparing delicious samples for the audiences to enjoy.

By their side were gardening experts Deryn Thorpe and Steve Wood from the All The Dirt podcast who were on hand with advice for growing fresh produce in your own backyard.

To help budding gardeners along, audiences also walked away with a handy autumn planting guide put together in collaboration with All The Dirt.

Watch your savings grow with better value energy

We were delighted to once again present the Perth Garden Festival and be the energy behind WA’s premier garden and outdoor living event.

While visitors browsed stalls and picked up gardening goodies, our Kleenheat team was also on hand for a friendly chat about how they too could enjoy better value energy with WA’s local provider.

We’ve already helped more than 190,000 WA households switch to Kleenheat for up to 35% off their natural gas charges, while thousands of customers outside WA’s natural gas network enjoy top-notch reliability and service with Kleenheat LPG.

If you’re yet to make the switch to Kleenheat, now’s the chance to enjoy better value energy and a heap of other customer benefits from WA’s local energy supplier.

    The best experience so far. Only downfall was the stall where we bought fish and chips – atrocious!

    The talks were fascinating, esp bush tucker and we had wonderful weather.

    Already looking forward to the next Garden Festival. It was a great day out full of interesting stands….I came home with many wonderful plants. It was so good to see many more plant stands….and they were all busy. Sick of buying the same old plants from a single source so well done. Please could someone sell unusual or ornamental garden solar lights next year please.

    The second worst garden show I have been to. Went to see and look for plants but a very small poor range.

    The downturn was picking your way through the dog faeces on Sunday to buy our lunches and then later at a garden entrance.
    If the dogs are allowed have doggie bags on show at regular intervals. Or it”s a garden show why allow dogs entry! We found the fish and chips very good value and enjoyed them.
