Gardener’s heaven – a lovely garden and the opportunity to buy from a wide selection of rare and unusual plants.
Over one special weekend, Australia’s Open Garden Scheme is once again bringing together exhibitors from Victoria and interstate offering choice perennials, rare trees and shrubs, Australian natives, bulbs and succulents, as well as sculpture and specialist tools.
It is an ideal opportunity for gardeners to meet and talk with expert growers of the most interesting and unusual plants, and to find something out of the ordinary.
Lubra Bend, a fascinating garden that carries off the combination of traditional and contemporary elements with real flair, is the venue for our sixth annual Plant Fair.
Within the fifty-year-old cypress hedges is an exceptionally exciting new Australian plant garden designed by Phil Johnson, complete with massive rocks, water and a billabong. Beyond, the Guildford Bell-designed house is surrounded by a mature country garden with perennial borders, shrubberies, croquet lawn, flourishing vegetable garden and small orchard.
Leave your purchases in the plant creche and take a leisurely stroll around the garden. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
