WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW IN THE GARDEN?

Flowers are appearing once again. 

September was full of jobs, weeding, planting, hand watering new plants, fertilising, mulching and putting plastic barriers around new plants to protect against rabbit damage.  Now in October flowers are appearing again speckled through most areas. The Heritage Border has a lot of colour.

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.
