Within this garden – where every space is utilised, both horizontally and vertically – not everything is seen at once. There is a rich diversity of botanical specimen trees, selective foliage plants and perennials in this well-designed garden. Many ‘oddities’ are grown and ‘cloud pruning’ of olive trees creates a visual interest. Plantings include many vireyas, begonias, various succulents, edible plantings such as various citrus trees, different currant bushes, and seasonal vegetables. There are meandering paths and quirky garden art pieces. The front garden with its circular lawn is surrounded by dense plantings which creates an intimate feeling.
There will be talks by the garden owner at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm on both days of the garden opening.
Another special feature is that Artist Jo Reitze will be painting the garden over the weekend whilst it is open.
