The Festoon team Christine, Max & Kim pruning on 24th July

Amidst the COLD WEATHER, RAIN AND WIND the hardy volunteers are still pruning. PRUNING COMMENCED ON 12TH JUNE and we are nearing the end in the Leaf & Tudor Rose. The bud is finished and the Weepers, Festoons and Climbers are almost finished too. The garden looks beautifully architectural to our visitors wandering around the orderly paths.

Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden

The Formal Entrance for Victoria State Rose Garden is clearly visible from the carpark.

The improvement was long overdue with visitors previously unable to locate the garden entrance due to foliage and inadequate signage. It is now easy to see the large Metal Entrance Arch from the car park. It has State Rose Garden inscribed and a side panel showing the plan of the 4.5 hectare garden.
