Around the corner from Tigminou is another heritage cottage. This traditional cottage garden surrounds one of Barton’s Federal Capital Commission homes, Type No 2, 1927.  Feature includes many mature fruit trees, vegetable beds, traditional ornamentals and special floral interests including irises and peonies.  A number of the ornamentals and fruit trees date back to the original gardens. Respecting the original plantings, the owners have been inspired by family visits to China and Japan to create a garden of beauty and harmony with both flowers and food production.

Janet’s garden notes are available.
