Tucked away behind a bed of natives and a tall, white, picket fence, Glenmore is a delightful surprise.

It demonstrates how two enthusiastic gardeners can create separate gardens which complement each other's passion for different plants.

One half of the front garden is exotic with large deciduous trees, an arbour draped in wisteria and a circular lawn surrounded by bulbs and poppies while the other side has a beautiful selection of native plants, pretty ground covers and bushes skillfully arranged around a bluestone wall and gravel path.

At the rear of the house the sound of running water leads to a naturalistic pond built by owner Paul complete with waterlilies, fish and ferns. A stunning weeping apricot adds interest throughout the year. Towards the rear of the 3/4 acre garden another surprise leads to a boronia bed and many indigenous plants which Christine and Paul use in their cooking.

The productive theme continues with an extensive veggie garden, compost area and hen house. The garden works well as a cohesive design despite different styles and selection of plantings. It certainly is an inspiring garden.

Proceeds from this garden support The Black Dog Institute.

The closest public toilets are in Johnston Street (the main street) behind the Information Centre and next to the Post Office. There is plenty of parking.
