Spring = garden events galore!

So many great events coming up – lots of open gardens, workshops and more!

Corryong Garden Getabout

weekend 12-13 November, 10am to 5pm

More than 10 gardens open, of all sorts! A pass for all gardens is $15/person. Or visit single gardens for $5/person. School children free. Coaches welcome. Passes are available from Corryong Neighbourhood Centre, Corryong Visitor Information Centre & some gardens.

Seed savers member Cathy Ross mentioned this event at our last gathering. She also noted: “Last year they organised a progressive dinner which visited 3 of the gardens at night. I am not sure if this is being planned again for this year but will let you know any details that I can find.
If anyone is planning to stay for dinner / overnight (there are more gardens open than can realistically be visited in one day) then I am happy to help either suggest commercial accommodation to suit or have some spare beds / camping space at my house.” — If you’d like to take Cathy up on her offer, contact Seed Savers and we’ll put you in touch.

Baarmutha – Jamie Kronberg and Peter Kenyon, Weir Lane, Baarmutha, near Beechworth.

The Stanley established garden has developed over 2 decades and is based around three principles of shade, produce (home and commercial) and habitat.  A cool climate, woodland garden, it contains many rare and interesting species in addition to over 40 species of Oak adjacent to the organic chestnut orchard.  
The Barmutha garden was established by an earlier owner and has been beautifully refined by the current owners. It is now a showcase of many fine plants and offers delightful views both within and over the adjoining landscape.
