Along with a host of tips from gardening specialists, including Better Homes and Gardens landscaping lad Jason Hodges and The Block favourite Dale Vine, visitors to this year's festival will be invited to immerse themselves in the magical world of Alice in Wonderland.

Visitors will be treated to an absurdly delicious high tea, whimsical music, dance and poetry and play, all wrapped up in the magical setting inspired the classic story."
