Entry from Paynes Ave.

We, Ray and Jeanette purchased the property approximately 11 years ago. There was only one previous owner to this approx 60 year old home who created the basis for the garden we enjoy today. Due to ill health of the previous owner, the garden had become somewhat unkempt.
It was a privilege for us to strip back and create the garden we enjoy today, being able to keep some of the original plantings while putting our own stamp on the property. Over the years we have built up a garden that attracts many species of birdlife, which we enjoy whilst relaxing in the garden. We have not designed the garden with any particular theme in mind; we just enjoy all the flora which include the fernery, palms, roses (120), cacti and natives.
Ray loves to propagate and many of the plants featured in the garden have been grown from cuttings, seed or division. We have also been given plants from family and friends and people who are just unable to care for them anymore. Many of these have now grown to become feature plants in the garden.
A wide range of propagated plants and hanging baskets will be for sale on both days.
