Gardening enthusiasts love the horticulture competition and displays at the Maitland Show.

Horticulture has played an important role in the Maitland District since it was first settled and has been a constant feature of the Maitland Show since 1840.

The eye-catching stands are one of the key attractions of the Thomas Morgan pavilion, individuals, community groups, clubs and associations all contributing to a wonderful array of colour and floral beauty.

Features of excellent displays typically include healthy plants, unusual plants or unusually good specimens of common species and a wide array of examples in specialist group displays.
