Open Garden Scheme

There will be three gardens open in our region this weekend for the Open Garden Scheme.

The strong growth and vigour of the beautifully presented Stormon garden at 4 Hatton Drive, Yass, shows just how much can be done in a relatively short time.

Silver birches, crab apples, Manchurian pears and Seduction roses feature throughout, with soft blues, silvers and whites creating a restful colour scheme.

Developed from scratch over a 30-year period, the beautiful garden at ‘Blackburn’, 1357 Cooks Hill Road, Yass, is tranquil, cool and green.

Regal white poplars underplanted with agapanthus lead into this colourful garden - an old-fashioned floral feast of foxgloves, lupins, poppies, forget-me-nots, banksias roses and larkspurs.

Huge English elm trees, thought to be the oldest in Australia, shade and shelter the 1820s ‘Collingwood’ homestead at 2312 Cullerin Road, Gunning.

A true country garden, it features irises, roses, lavender, rock roses, honesty and sage.

Please note the open garden planned at ‘Kirkwood Cottage’ this weekend has now been cancelled.
