This large naturalistic garden contains plants selected for hardiness in this exposed site and suitability for their 1880s cottage, which was moved to this site in 1925. The owners have re-developed the garden using a large range of both native and exotic plants including spring bulbs, unusual roses and Mediterranean shrubs and ground-covers. The garden includes very large pots used for water pots and feature plants. There is also a food production area, a mulching zone and relaxation areas.

Displays of stained glass, leadlight and mosaic items by Rachael from Groovy Glass ACT for sale.

Nevertire Garden Notes are available.
