Australian Garden Tour—The Exhibition Gardens
On this tour, we will start by reviewing the exhibition gardens in the southern portion of the Australian Garden. These gardens are now about 7 years old, and are starting to show some maturity. We have learnt valuable lessons from these gardens – and it is good to be able to share this knowledge. During this time, these gardens have been changed or adapted in subtle ways.
Stage 2 of the Australian Garden introduces a range of new exhibition gardens that again focus on the home gardener, but with a concentration of the horticultural demands of inner city gardens. We will discuss the design process that created these newer gardens, and the key themes that have been developed.
During this tour, we can show you the plans that were prepared by Taylor Cullity Lethlean, and the planting plans by Paul Thompson. You can see the development of the ideas from their first formulation to their realisation on-the-ground.
The numbers for this tour will be restricted to 25 people - so if you are interested, please book early.
