Nestling in a beautiful meander of the Loddon River this owner designed and maintained garden has something for everyone. Features include an orchard, espaliered apple and quince trees, raised produce/kitchen beds, a chook run and various Neil Tait wrought iron structures, including one with wisteria cascading from it. The luxuriant foliage of an Indian bean tree is not too be missed. A pair of stunning 30 year old Japanese maple trees forms a canopy over a peaceful pond area, ideal for hot summer days. The lovely backdrop of the river surrounds provides a typically Australian borrowed landscape.
Espalier Workshop by Karen Sutherland of Edible Eden Design on Sunday 1 November at 1pm.
