Els’ Garden

10am to 4pm, 21st and 22nd October 2023

Els’ garden is on a quarter acre, gently south-west sloping block, and includes a variety of ornamental zones front and back including a substantial variety of native plants. Phyla nodiflora on the nature strip leads to Isopogons sheltering under a Chinese pistacio, near a young Myoporum floribundum and Solanum linearifolium. Mauve Prostanthera and Westringia contrast beautifully with the yellows and oranges of Micrantheum hexandrum and multiple Banksias and Grevilleas. The stunning exotic Cercis siliquastrum shades white Olearia and Veronica. In the back garden a small pond and creek make a lovely setting. A wisteria covered pergola creates a shady outdoor area for a cup of tea or coffee.
