Our May meeting was held at the William Street garden of member Barb MacTaggart and her partner Norman Wise.  The weather was kind to us and the showers stayed away for the afternoon.  Barb has enjoyed using her horticultural and ecology skills to enhance the site with fresh ideas forming an eclectic garden boasting many rooms.   It was delightful to see the changes Barb and Norman have made since our last club visit.  Thank you Barb and Norman.


Our meeting on the 3rd of April was held in the garden of Lorraine and Ted Inwood.  They have lived at their beautiful haven for over 20 years.  The garden consists of beautiful conifers, deciduous trees, a formal garden and covered walkways.  All highlighted with Lorraine’s garden art.  Thanks Lorraine and Ted.  It was wonderful for the club to visit your lovely garden again.



14 members travelled to Sydney on Wednesday the 9th of February.   It was a stunning day and the two hour cruise was informative and extremely enjoyable.


Our March meeting was held at Peter and Janelle Matus’ garden,  “Tara”, Rockley Road, Rockley.   Thank you to Peter and Janelle for sharing your lovely garden with the club.

The October 7 meeting will be held at 2pm at Spencer and Beryl’s garden at 9 Wilde Close, Llanarth. Stalwarts of the garden club, Spencer and Beryl have a lovely town garden featuring a variety of plantings including clematis, iris, succulents, salvia, penstemon and geraniums. Parking is limited as the garden is at the top of a steep cul-de-sac so drop-off only at the driveway and then park in Stinson Street or Endurance Court. Car sharing would be preferable.

Our November 4 meeting will be held at 2pm at Lesley and Keith’s property, “Greenbrook”, a rural property situated approximately 15 minutes north of Bathurst at 1237 Limekilns Road. The front of the property has a stunning view across the valley to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Keith and Lesley began developing the house paddock four years ago, planting native and deciduous trees, interspersed with shrubs and underplanted with bulbs, their aim being to create a windproof and tranquil area surrounding their house.
