A one acre Sub Tropical garden situated just east of Brisbane. We have opened our garden to the public for 18 years. We open in November to aid a specific charity. On this weekend get a lot of pleasure meeting fellow gardeners. Judy sells many rare plants and this helps us to do more projects and buy more plants. Judy and I are 'plants-people'and cannot resist buying something rare that we do not have. It has been very hard gardening as we seem to be in a severe drought most years.

Garden Club Presentations and Bus Tours
The year 2012 has
again been busy with garden presentations and bus trips.
thought I would elaborate on what we do.
With garden presentations I have a laptop,
projector and large screen which I bring with me.
I now have three 'Power Point' presentations at the
moment; all go for approx 45 minutes to one hour depending on questions.
The presentations are ‘Smart Sub
Tropical gardening’, ‘A Passion for Plants’ and ‘Bizarre and Beautiful Botanical's , all have about 200 slides of plants from our garden. All my presentations have been very well recieved.
We do bring
up to seven trays of plants to sell at very reasonable prices and usually
donate a Bromeliad for the clubs raffle.
travelled as far as Tweed Heads and have been as far north as Kilcoy Garden
from the presentations has always been very good.
In regard to
bus trips we are more than happy to
accommodate visitors on bus tours.
charged a nominal fee of $4.00 which goes to cover the cost of rising public liability
We are happy
to have the urn boiling and milk in the fridge when you arrive and have a large patio area where
visitors can sit and have morning tea.
trips bring their own coffee and tea, but if that is not possible we will supply the tea and coffee at no extra cost.
visitors use our laundry toilet.
We have a wonderful selection of garden plants and bromeliads for sale.
at the very minimum a 1.5 hour stay. If you would like to contact us my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
plenty to see at our one acre garden and it does not really matter if clubs
visit more than once as there are different things to see each season.
Judy and I
do our utmost to make visitors feel welcome, that’s why we call our garden a
finish with us I recommend they go to ‘Lagoon View Gardens’ nursery situated at
Lagoon View Road, Redland Bay.
Genya Robinson are the owners and have created a stunning display garden
situated between two beautiful lagoons.
selector I recommended this garden open through ‘Open Gardens Australia’ but
they now have a new policy that retail outlets are no longer available to open
through the scheme.
honestly say this garden is well worth going to.
