SPRING IS REALLY HERE!
There is no time to rest. The Volunteers are weeding, mulching, tying up wayward growth, feeding and watering new roses. We have our eyes firmly on preparation for the November State Rose & Garden Show.
Individual flowers are appearing in lots of beds, especially in Petal B in the Tudor Rose which was pruned first. The Heritage Border has a lot of colour and is worth a visit. Photos taken 2nd Oct.
Check out the LATEST ROSE STORIES from our resident storyteller and Life Member, Wal.
Check out our Facebook Page packed with beautiful up to the minute photos, the majority of which are taken by Christine, the FB editor for VSRG, and interesting & useful information.
There are always such interesting stories and postings on our Facebook site. Interested rose buffs love to share their photos and offer information about their favourite roses.
Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden
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.
Entry is free but all donations are gratefully accepted as the Garden is maintained by volunteers.
Via the donation tube when you visit, located just inside the main entrance.
