Dragon flies and blue bees
24 February @ 10:00 am - 25 February @ 4:00 pm
This suburban oasis features a natural water pool from which you can admire the water lilies, lotus and water poppies. The garden is highly productive, containing vegetables and herbs. Espaliered pear, plum and apple trees are features, together with cherry, quince, apricot, feijoa, pomegranate and grapes. The Maran chooks enjoy their home under the inoculated hazelnut trees as the owners await their first truffles. Good design ensures that local native plantings (especially correas) integrate beautifully into this productive garden, as does the outdoor room with mobile firepit.
Garden notes will be available.
