This year, it's 25 years since Larry and I discovered Glenmore House, (then a collection of dilapidated buildings), nestled into the hills of the Razorback Range. I'm not entirely sure where the years have flown, although much of our (spare?) time has been spent making a garden! There's been a lot to learn since taking those first steps through the gates one sunny autumn day - from restoring buildings to making compost, discovering and nurturing plants (as well as babies - now fully grown!). So for this OPEN GARDEN WEEKEND (for Open Gardens Australia), I've been arranging some extra treats for you to enjoy....
On 19 & 20 OCTOBER, there will be a handful of delightful plant stalls, as well as antique garden furniture on the Croquet Lawn, an artist or two in the Hayshed, quirky performances on the Persimmon Lawn (busking style so we'll ask you to bring a gold coin please). I'll be giving a talk about Kitchen Gardening on both mornings at 11am, as well as (to answer all those questions I'm constantly asked about what Glenmore was like when we found it), giving a talk & slide show presentation at 2pm on both days, on making the garden, a 25 year journey.
I'll post more details as the weekend draws near, but I do hope you'll mark the date in your calendar now, and arrange to bring some friends along to enjoy one of the days. We're looking forward to the weekend, and we'll very much hope to see you here then - old friends and new. To discover more details (as they are so far anyway), please click here!
