Open Garden: CHRISTINE’S GARDEN
A delightful and inspirational garden has been created here on a very low budget. Paths edged by perennials lead to different rooms of the garden where hidden treasures make themselves noticed. Large mirrors strategically placed on boundary fences will have you believing the garden is endless.
Box hedges form the spokes of a wheel in the parterre garden. Rock walls help to terrace the garden beds which are rich in composted soils. The 3 hens who live in Cluckingham Palace, help provide nutrients for the compost bins.
A wide range of exotics thrive in this garden, filling the beds with vibrant colour. Peaceful areas of lawn allow for relaxing moments.
Many of the garden plants have been propagated by the owner and will be available for purchase.
When: 7th and 8th November, 10am-4pm.
Where: 48 Weathers Street, Gowrie ACT.
