Mount Alexander Shire gardens

Start: Sat 3rd Nov. 10 a.m. | End: Sun 11th Nov. 4 p.m.

This Festival of Gardens is shaping up to be one of the best. More than 20 gardens throughout the shire will open to the public - a photographers, gardeners and nature lovers veritable feast. A wonderful, diverse mixture of garden styles .i.e. Mediterranean, English, native and sustainable organic gardens, the surprise and delight of mass plantings of colourful perennials and annuals against green weeping lawns and clipped rounded forms.

Perennials, heritage fruit trees, delightful flowering shrubs, bonsai, succulents and roses abound set in or about beautiful local sandstone walls displaying the talented work of local artisans and sculptors.

Some garden opening times may vary (check festival program for opening times and locations closer to the time)
