Yates partners with the New Zealand Flower & Garden Show


The New Zealand Flower and Garden Show (NZFGS) is delighted to announce its partnership with Yates for the inaugural Auckland based garden show extravaganza from 29th November – 3rd December 2017.

New Zealand’s leading gardening supplies brand will be sponsoring the Yates Community Gardening Marquee which showcases the many community gardens, garden clubs and horticultural societies throughout New Zealand that enrich the lives of Kiwi gardeners.

NZFGS Event Director Kate Hillier says Yates will bring generations of expertise and knowledge to the show.

“Yates continues to foster a love of gardening across all ages and we are thrilled that New Zealand’s much loved gardening experts will be sharing their knowledge through the creation of this special marquee.  We encourage community garden projects, garden clubs and horticultural societies to showcase their skills and share their knowledge.”

Fiona Arthur, Yates Marketing Manager says Yates has been helping gardens grow for over 130 years and it is so much more than just growing plants.

“Gardening brings people together, growing lifelong friendships, fun and inspiration.  The Marquee is an opportunity for gardeners of all ages and levels of expertise to come and share their knowledge, companionship and all the benefits of being part of community based projects,” says Ms Arthur.

“Our Garden Guide experts will be stationed within the ‘Yates Thriving Garden’ display in the marquee, so come along with all your questions and make the most of our gardening expertise.”

It is anticipated the Yates Community Gardening Marquee will be very popular with visitors who want to learn from both experts and passionate amateur gardeners.  Exhibiting in the Yates Community Gardening Marquee, is also a wonderful opportunity to encourage club & society membership.

There are a limited number of sites still available in the marquee, so please visit or contact for further information on exhibiting or attending the show.
