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.

Volunteers keeping the festoons orderly by tying up the new growth. 2nd Oct.
Volunteers hard at work weeding the Heritage Border. 2nd Oct.
Beautiful burgundy and multi shades of green leaves sit below the swelling flower buds. 2nd Oct.
New growth is filling in all areas of the garden once again aided by the warm weather. 2nd Oct.

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.

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.
