Bathurst Spring Spectacular

You are invited to visit spectacular gardens in and around Bathurst on the weekend of Oct 27th and 28th, 2018 Click here for more info.

Our first meeting for 2018 will be on February 4 at the garden of Mike and Cheryl Burrey, 44 Morrow Place, Robin Hill. The owners have lived here for 16 years and their garden is influenced by the well-known landscape designer Edna Walling, who was renowned for her use of stones and trees, which became the heart and soul of her landscapes.  Our gardeners will spot the underground water tank, although it is camouflaged by a lovely garden. Turn right off Blayney Road into McDiarmid Street, left into Wigmore Drive and right into Morrow Place. Easy access to parking at rear for people who would find it hard to manage the pathway. Plenty of parking out-front.

 

The March 4 meeting will be held at the garden of Shirley Faulds and John Reid, at 55 Wigmore Drive, Robin Hill. Shirley and John have lived here for five years. The garden is on a 3-acre sloping block which created plenty of challenges. Retaining walls were built to enable a lawn area and space for a shed to be erected. Plantings of native shrubs are used for screening as well as for attracting birds and bees. Surrounded by neighbouring trees, the property has nice views over Bathurst. Turn right off Blayney Road into McDiarmid Street, then left into Wigmore Drive. There is plenty of parking on the verge near the cul-de-sac. Drop-off if required near the garage.

 

Both meetings will commence at 2pm. Please bring a chair and a plate of food to share for afternoon tea. For enquires regarding meetings contact Elizabeth Gilchrist on 0416 115 796
