Garden Notes
The Garden Notes are written by the garden owners and often tell the story of their garden. We try to provide Garden Notes ahead of the opening for every garden, but unfortunately this is not always possible. Garden Notes will usually be available in the week prior to the garden opening and will remain available online after the garden has opened. A list of available Garden Notes (in pdf format) can be found by using the 'Notes' link next to each garden or the link below.

Please note that children under 18 are admitted free of charge

Bellis: the garden of Jerry Coleby-Williams EVENT DETAILS > Click here
ABC Gardening Australia presenter Jerry Coleby-Williams' own inspiring, award-winning garden. Jerry's great depth of knowledge and a passion for sustainability are the key ingredients to its success, with good soil preparation ensuring bounteous seasonal organic crops. The house is solar-powered, rainwater is harvested for drinking, and all waste water is recycled for food growing. Even the lawn is sustainable - it's mown using a solar-powered lawnmower!
A hedge of one of Australia's rarest wildflowers, the Philip Island Hibiscus, will be in flower.
