Instagram Live - 'A walk in the garden' with Matt Reed at Antique Perennials

Our host, Stephen Read, joined Matt Reed, co-owner of Antique Perennials - a specialist nursery in Kinglake growing rare, unusual and collectable perennials.

Matt took us through the beautiful new gravel display garden at their nursery, which has recently opened its doors beyond wholesale to now offer retail plants to the general public. The display garden meanders through swathes of ornamental grasses and flowering perennials, and right now is showcasing plants such as agastache, salvia, geum, kniphofia and achillea as they come into flower for summer. Matt also showed us some of the stunning mass plantings in the nursery stock beds where you really get the impact of mass planting and colour!

This was a fascinating tour with great background knowledge from Matt who has been collecting, propagating and growing perennials from all over the world for more than 20 years.
